Is it a card.....or is it a gift??



I made this for my MIL...................who happily loves both hand made cards and anything that contains photos of her grandchildren.............so....... perfect for her........I took it to demo at the 'Creative Xmas' class I'm teaching for parents in a primary school..........I feel it's almost a gift...........especially if made with a child to give to their grandparents...........what do you think?


It's so simple to make......just 4 squares of card.........mine are 6 x 6........but could be any size.......decorated with scraps of xmas paper,photos and a few embellishments on the front.....just xmas papers on the back.........joined together with ribbon in a concertina style.......it all folds up and pops in a box I made for it.
I think any grandparent would probably love something on these lines.
