EX. I love construction paper. I make all my custom cards with construction paper. There is something nostalgic about the material. We all used it in school, when we were kids, because it was colorful, could stand up to more rough handling, and was less likely to give you a paper cut (I totally just imagined that third reason, but my paranoid nature deems it to make sense). Who else loves the feel oh having a box of markers, a pair of scissors, and nothing but your imagination to guide you on a journey through a construction paper universe?
