How to fold a note...the middle school way
Back before Facebook, Cell Phones, Text Messaging and Email..
We wrote notes!
These notes bring back so many memories for me...our school was really big on these little bad boys, and I must have written and folded thousands of these in my day.
I got to thinking about all my friends growing up, and I feel really lucky that I am still so connected with some of my favorite friends over the years. Facebook is a fabulous thing, I love talking with old friends!
I had a girlfriend over the other day, we've been friends since 3rd grade and we got to talking about these notes..she still has all of hers! I can't wait to read all the drama infested stuff I felt was important in my middle school years..buuuawhahahahaha..or maybe I don't wanna remember!
So let's get started shall we?
Step 1: Write your drama infested note, professing who you love that week, which one of your friends you hate today but will be friends with tomorrow..you know..the usual stuff :)
Step 2: Fold over the Right Corner
Step 3: Fold over Right side again so that you now have this shape
Step 4: Flip over..QUICK HIDE YOUR NOTE..the teachers coming!
Step 5: Fold up bottom portion like so..I'd say about a 1/3 of the way up
Step 6: Fold the bottom up again
Step 7: Fold that little Triangle piece up and under the fold there.
Now have fun with the doodling :)
Awww man..good times!
Having a 6th grader of my own really brings back memories...It's so weird to watch him engage with his friends, I swear it was just yesterday that I was that very same age...ugh, time flies!
Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting!
