What Goes Up and Never Comes Down?

I loved making paper airplanes as a kid (and decorating them!) and as I was thinking about the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to feature things you'd see in the sky, I thought it would be fun to make a paper airplane again. Only a mini one this time. Add a riddled sentiment and you've got a birthday card for just about anyone.


The roof's edge is cut longer so when it's resting it takes the shape of a roof.

Then when you open it, you get the answer to the riddle. Hahaha. The answer is suspended with thread so it hangs vertically as you open the roof. I made wide fringe for the roof tiles, snipped the corners for a little dimension, and used the woodgrain impression plate.

Thanks for looking!

Supplies used:
stamps:  PTI Movers and Shakers: Sentiments, Martha Stewart Backgrounds
impression plates: PTI Woodgrain
other: thread, baker's twine
