    Not sure if i'm late, but it's easy to peel off the sticker without ruining it.

    Peel off one corner very carefully, just enough so you have enough to pick it with your fingers, and then slowly blow your breath on the back of the sticker (where the sticker and the envelope meet) as you SLOWLY peel it off. The moisture of your breath will help loosen the glue/stickiness, making it less likely to tear.

    You could do this using vapor (a kettle, water boiler), but that might be toomuch moisture and might ruin the envelope and the cards. Your breath gives u more control.

    Slow and steady wins the race.

    Finally got mine yesterday. Opened it @ work to minimize the mess. Used a metal straightedge & utility knife to cut a thin strip off of the right side (when looking @ the sticker) of the plastic & through the envelope. Mucked the cards up for a while & gave them a double coat of clear lacquer. Blasted out the envelope with compressed air. No fuss, no muss when you want to look at them. The cards are definitely going in a frame. Found a brushed aluminum/glass cabinet door at work that will fit all 6 cards, with the transparency going over the (pink & purple) credits card. Gonna silicone a backing on. Should look great when it's done. This is cool stuff.

A perfectly straight cut/opening could end up being a detriment. The sticker stays clean as well.



    I don't know, I feel like you really have to break that seal otherwise it defeats the purpose. I'm sure there's a way to slowly open it while still keeping the words intact once broken.

    Seriously guys? I'm sorry I did not open the envelope in a more crowd-pleasing way.

    Oh nice - so those are the couple variations on each that we hadn't seen yet? Sure looks like it to me, unless you'd done some processing on 'em to confuse us all.

    Nope, those are the missing pieces. That "Branches/Bones" one is fucking insane.

    Seriously! Well done. How many of those things did you order, anyway?
