Scratch & Sniff Xmas Tree Card - Pics and pdf inside! You provide the smell.
So, I finally figured out how to use the perfume magazine inserts in a craft project.
I've been wanting to create this Christmas card for years and I couldn't figure out how to make it "smell". I tried everything, but the design was always a little off.
Then it dawned on me I could paper punch the scents out of the magazine ads. Before you start, realize this is an oversized card. It's 8 1/2 x 11 (letter size) and the blank white rectangle, well that's for your personal message!
To begin print the pdf. I suggest printing it with a color printer and on card stock so it holds up, once you cut out the image.

Now, using a 1-inch circular paper punch, punch those babies out and by babies I mean circles. See where I'm punching, you want a little "flap" to remain, this keeps the circle sealed while you work and allows the receiver to "open" and release the scent themselves. It might take a little practice to get it just right.
