Go ahead and laminate

I’m a big fan of laminating. Why? Laminating gives these Folding Surprise activities a bit more permanence. Simply put your Folding Surprise paper in a self- sealing laminate pouch and you can fold and unfold your surprise paper again and again without worrying that you will tear it.

If you don’t have any self-sealing laminate pouches,  a simple and easy laminator would work. This is the laminator I use and recommend.

Need some craft supplies?

Amazon has always been my go-to for most of my office and craft supplies. If you print a lot of printables and spend  time coloring, gluing and adding some extra jazz to them, our list of supplies can help!

I’ve split the list up into a basic list and a fancier list if you’re going to put a little more pizazz into your printables.
