Important:

We recommend using 110 lb. card stock or better for most of our printables.  Please refer to the individual instructions to be sure.

 
CAUTION:

Some of our projects require items that could be swallowed by the very young.  We rely on the supervising adult's judgment to determine how appropriate a project is for each child.

Printing Tips

 

Depending on your O/S and printer, the procedure may differ from this one.  If you use Windows, you may find these steps especially helpful for greeting card set up. 

 

Click on "File", cursor down to "Page Setup" and select

Change "Paper Size" to [Banner (Letter 8.5 x 11)]

Change page orientation to match the page

Set all margins to .25"

Check "Print Preview"

Make adjustments to the margins if necessary

When everything looks okay, "Print"

 

Most of our projects work best with 110 lb. paper or better.

 

Cutting

 

Little hands may have a hard time cutting the smaller or hard-to-reach areas of some of

    our crafts.  Pointed scissors will make the job easier, but an adult should supervise the

    very young.

Try cutting as close to the outermost outline as possible.  This will eliminate a lot of the 

    white border from around the project.

 

Folding

 

When folding paper, especially the thicker card stock, use the "flat" edge of a ruler to

   bend the paper.  It will make your folds crisper.

Roll small paper pieces by first wrapping the paper around your finger to get the paper

   bending in the right direction before attempting to achieve a tight roll.
