Ultimate Party Invitation - The Tato Advanced: 60-Second Fold of the Week
Well, here were are, 9 years later, at episode #450 - thank you for watching! We wanted to celebrate this milestone with a very special format that was designed for a very special event. Vicki Strull wanted to design an unforgettable invitation for her daughter's Bat Mitzvah - one that would reflect her daughter's personality and style.
We think she knocked it out of the park with this Tato Advanced format that offers a gorgeous reveal, specialized inks, and the latest in laser cutting and creasing technology.
