This is a fun, creative idea to announce a new home using something that all of us use every day - Google! Celebrate your new space with friends and family with DIY cards customized with a map of your new home.

1. Google your new address and click on the "map view". Then take a screenshot of the map. Resize and print the map to fit the greeting card size that you'd like to mail. Then trim down to size using the SureCut™ Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer. I used a standard #10 sized envelope, so my cards were 4" x 9.25".

2. Print or hand write a greeting and your new address onto a secondary card of colored cardstock and trim down to fit your choice of greeting card size.

3. Print or hand write the words "We've Moved!" onto cardstock.Use The Original Orange-handled Scissors™ to trim the printed phrases into strips to fit in the Tag Maker punch. Then punch the sentiments out using the Standard/Scallop Double Tag Maker design. The awesome thing about this tool is that it contains everything you need to make a tag, including the hole punch and eyelet setter!
