RAK - #1

For those of you who don't know, and RAK is a Random Act of Kindness. In Swap Sisters, there are a couple of the most AMAZING women who do the most GENEROUS things out of their own pockets, so we can share in the wonderful world that is papercraft. Sue Denning is one of these women. She is the founder and the driving force behing Swap Sisters and without her, things indeed would be very different.

With this in mind, I decided to pop an RAK in the post to her to say THANK YOU for all that she does. She let it slip in the chatroom one night that she is always taking notes and writing down ideas and sketching ideas for 3D projects. Recently on SCS they had a tutorial for a Matchbox Post It Folder and I combined this with a mini journal and 3 x 3 note tag. This was really the first co-ordinated gift I had done and I was more than happy with the result.

The mini journal....

The matchbook post it front and back.......


and the side....

Finally the note card....

It worked a treat and Sue was very surprised. RAK's make people smile (and hopefully) make their day a bit better.
