I find the lack of clear, complete instructions both in the mag and on-line frustrating. I was so hoping for a printable pattern, not something I have to buy a pattern for in my machine!
The download feature could be more user friendly. Shouldn't have to go thru so many steps as a subscriber. Will not let me download gift boxes from Nov/Dec 2013 issue.
need silouet or other expensive die cutter?
Im really disappointed to find that what should be fairly simple box making instructions, requires a special, expensive machine. what ever happened to a good old pattern and scissors?!
