I laid the squares in rows (so it was thin) and then put them on a piece of card stock and wrapped them with saran wrap. I have been told they arrived safely and with no postage due. I can post a picture if anyone wants to see how I did it.
    I will do a separate post for cutting fabric.

    I do get some pulling with this die. I think it might be the size and have found when my cutting mat get worn that makes a difference also. I still think it is faster cutting this way. I like to iron a pile of fabric and then cut 2 1/2", 3 1/3 and tumblers all at the same time. I have made a ton of quilts from the 3 1/2" squares. The Go was one of the best things I've ever treated myself to.

    sew4nin I mail my stuff the same way Barb does. It really does work. I use any type of thin cardboard, I have been know to recycle cereal boxes. When I wrap mine in plasitc wrap I will poke a few small holes in the plastic so air can escape so when you take to post office it fits through their little envelope thing. Barb and I swap charms on another site and our envelopes have 100 charms in them so this should be not problem for 50 charms.
