I did it!

Well ok almost did it. I managed to finish 140 out of the 150 requested. It turned out to be ok, we had a few extras. I couldn't have done it without my mom's help. She was such a trooper every time I dropped off a stack or basket of something and said they needed to be cut or tape put on. I'm mad at myself for not taking a picture of them all but it didn't occur to me till the majority of them were handed out. The only picture I have is this one, it has 34 of them in it

I'm so pleased with the way they turned out. Since they were for our Outreach I had to incorporate something about our church and this is what I came up with
Sorry for the bit of glare on it. But it has my church's name, the misson statement and the church website on it. Going shopping for this order was kinda fun. Nothing like spending a ton of money knowing you'll get it back. In case you were wondering, this is what I had to get, mind you the pattern paper I just used from my huge stash so I didn't need to buy those:

3 packs of solid 8.5x11
6 packs of Kraft 8.5x11 paper
8 refills for my tape runner
5ft of sticky back Velcro
4 solid 12x12 cardstock sheets
5 solid 8.5x11 sheets
10 things of stick tape (+ another I had to run out to get)
It was definitely alot! Now I have few stacks of scrap paper leftover. Will definitely have fun trying to figure out ways to use it all up. Also a major plus is I have extra cover pieces cut so new coupon holders will be posted on the site within a week. I don't think I can do anymore this weekend! I have enough cleanup to last for awhile. And the shopping organizers I started are at the top of my to-finish list so keep your eyes out for them as well. Happy Crafting!
