The second character is The Madhatter. OMG I love him. I wrestled with the idea of giving him buck teeth but in the end decided not to. Some say he is not the Hatter without them but oh well to each his own.

3. Apply a thin layer of rubber cement to the top of the pad and let dry. Repeat this 5 times.
4. Put a thick coat of craft glue on top of the rubber cement. Stand pad so the top is facing up and allow to dry overnight.

I used both a glue stick and rubber cement on mine. All in all I have to say the rubber cement works better. I glued 2 mag pages together and on some of them I noticed that the glue didn't hold them together. The next time I make them I'm using just rubber cement. The mailer can be a bit smelly from he rubber cement, but it will go away in a day or two.Even thought this was rather labor intensive I will definitely do this again. I mean just think of all the junk mail you can recycling by doing this....humm I wonder if you can use plastic bags to make mailers........ Not to mention by doing this you can customize the size of your packages. I hate having to use a giant mailer for one tiny little thing. There is already a giant pile of mags and junk mail waiting to be neato mailers. I love breathing new life into things.

After I boiled the hell out of it. I added all the sugar and boiled the hell out of it again.
These are my plumerias. They should be blooming by the end of next month. I'm a plant nut there I said it.
Turvy plant. I hope these are the first of many, but we shall see.
