Aluminum Foil

If any of you already knew about this, I want to know why you never told me!!!! Do you know all the aggravation you could have saved me?

Aluminum Foil
OK I hope I am not the only person who didn’t know this. I checked and sure enough it is there.
I've been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.Well, I would like to share this with you.Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, 'Press here to lock end'. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of times the Saran warp roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this.

Hi there
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog twistedscrapper. You mention I should include links in my email. I always do. In the body of the emails I always say where a particular freebie can be downloaded. If that link is not clickable for you then I always have the link to my blog in my email signature. Twisted Scrapper.

Also the ads that I mention are the Google Ads. They are for the most part scrap related so you dont lose anything by clicking them. However, I always gain when someone clicks. That and of course the many sweet comments is what keeps me going. It makes me feel that at least some people appreciate the time I put into the freebies I offer. I considering that I offer several freebies every day I spend considerable time creating.
But when people like yourself take the time to leave a comment then I feel I happy and immediately make more freebies :)
Feel free to stop by and download any freebies you like, at any time you like :)

I love knowing this! It is like the little arrow by the gas gauge that tells you which side the tank is on - a convenience no one tells you about. Thanks for the kits and this useful data
