Ok, so I love cute little monkeys, but I don't find a need for them in my scrapbooks very often. So what is a girl to do when she sees a cute little monkey freebie from Miss Kate's Cuttables. Well, turn it into a shaped card of course. I haven't done a shaped card in a while. I can't seem to ever get them to fold exactly even when I flip and weld and it bugs me if they don't fold exact. Well, this one was no exception. I even tried to shadow it so that I would have a wider base to "place" him on and "fold" but he still didn't fold exactly right. Oh well. Hopefully whoever gets him won't care that the fold is slightly off. I actually think it's because my cutter isn't "exact." I can often cut two eyes on a project that are exactly the same and yet when cut, they are different sizes. One of these days I might upgrade my machine but until then.....I will have to live with the little inconsistencies that it gives me. Most of the time, it's no big deal but for shaped cards, I find it annoying. Even with that said, I still think my little monkey card is cute!
