But of course we can Counterfeit our own!

If you do not have a dictionary to cut up, or a "text" stamp to create your own "random text" paper, you can use the following free downloads to print your own "text" paper.

"Handwriting" printable paper
Printable "graph" paper 
"Dictionary" and "sheet music" printable paper
1912 Dictionary Page
One last "dictionary" printable page

Simply use the paper you choose in any die cut machine to create your own "Expressions Alphabet". 

Bonus tip:
To make your letters a little more dimensional, try covering chipboard letters with the "text" paper of your choice.  For tips on covering chipboard, check out the following tutorial...How to cover chipboard shapes (and letters)

  3. I like the idea of printing out your own paper! If you have an electronic die cut machine that can cut true type fonts from the computer, you can download any free "noodle font" to recreate this look. Then, just cut it out on an old book page! The possibilities are endless!

  5. use your local goodwill/ thrift store for the text books...super cheap! Just remember to spray with acid -free spray first.
