Giveaway: JetPens gift certificates | How About Orange

December 09, 2009

Giveaway: JetPens gift certificates

I received a little package from JetPens.com the other day. Stationery, pens, and paper goodies fill me with irrational amounts of glee! So do miniature envelopes made from the insides of security envelopes. Yup, look what I did. JetPens has a mini envelope template (this) with which you can trace various sizes of envelopes, then cut, fold, and glue. I tried out their Japanese glue pen (this) to secure them, and it worked like a charm. The blue glue dries clear and bonds strongly. A tip: shake it before using.

Want to get some stocking stuffers or a treat for yourself? JetPens is giving away two $25 gift certificates to How About Orange readers. I know, it's holiday giveaway season over here, right? Just leave a comment on this post by Friday (12/11/09) midnight CST. Two random winners will be drawn, announced in this post, and emailed a gift certificate.

Update: Giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winning commenters #425— Malori, and #897—Toiling Ant. Enjoy!

I have made similar envelopes out of tyvek fabric to store my debit and credit cards in my wallet (which is just a simple pouch). A template would make this task a cinch. The glue pen is intriguing.

Holly Noelle @ Domestic Dork said...

What is it about mini envelopes that excites me? They're just so darn cute, I guess!

l.y. said...

I have an irrational love of stationery! This is awesome :)

Madhypnotist said...

my cat has batted all my pens under my desk. I need new ones.

anotheryarn said...

Ah stationary, I used to ask for "office supplies" when I was a kid - loved having a little stock of post-its, pens, and such. And japanese pens and pencils are so tempting - I didn't think I liked ballpoint pens until I tried a japanese version. $25 would be downright luxurious.

Lori said...

I have a serious pen weakness - this is great!

Catherine said...

Wow, it is not even funny how cool these are! I've been using 'glue tape' for my enveloppes, but it's finnicky and unreliable. These glue pens sound like a dream (and I like their versatility)!
