  24. LIke the look of the embossing on the foam. I've die cut foam but not embossed it. Was not sure that foam inside an embossing folder would work due to the thickness. I'll have to give it a try. My daughter likes Mushrooms.

  52. This is so cute! I have very little experience with foam. I am into making home made board games with my kids and am always recycling boxes to organize their school supplies and toys. I think foam might be great for both of those projects. I really should give it a try! Thanks for the great inspiration :)
