Diner-Themed Dimensional Iron Cross Self-Mailer - 60-Second Fold of the Week
Here's a brilliant idea for a memorable save-the-date keepsake! PLAY Creative of Lincoln, Neb., designed an iron cross self-mailing invitation that transforms into a dimensional, 50s-style diner with a few easy moves. Printed by Regal Printing in Omaha, the piece was developed to promote a "Culinary Classics" event for Legacy Retirement Communities, and features retro-themed illustrations and event information.
There are also simple instructions for how to build the diner, and Trish will show you how it's done. You won't want to miss it!
