Thank you ChefJulie, that's very sweet of you to say!
I thought about getting a pretty pattern online and print on cardstock, I have a laser printer and a photo printer, I could test which looked better. I was just afraid that the combo of printing the pages AND having to hand cut would make them NOT a bargain. The addition of supplies and time, you know? One thing I got was a sheet of the sticky back foam, and the thin Hobby Lobby paper. I thought I'd try putting the paper on the foam and cutting them out. That would be WAY sturdy, and honestly, those two sheets from HL cost less than one sheet of the printed cardstock at Michael's, I think. Or at least negotiably close. Thank GOODNESS I have a little bit of time and all of you guys kicking out excellent suggestions!
enchantedcreations, I cannot tell you how jealous I am that your hubby runs a paper store. I have this weird...*thing* about paper. Office supplies make me all crazy. If you take me into a scrapbooking type store, or even a really good office products store, I get all... excited. Like a kid in a candy store. It's almost embarassing.
