What to bring to the handmade gift exchange….. The possibilities seem endless. A painting? Photography? Something crafty? I decided to make cards. Taking my inspiration from a (rather hideous yet clever) card note book I had picked up at the thrift store, I thought I would make my own Birthday Card Year book. It was a great project to try. The whole thing took me about 4 hours, which included designing the cards, troubleshooting problems and of course pausing to take pictures. I think I will refine the process now that I have done one. For now, here is my first!
I realized I did not get a good picture of where the cards go! Basically, each of the Tim Hortons bags acts as a separate compartment to keep the card for the month. The cards fit perfectly into the bag. It is like Tim Hortons bags were made to be up-cycled! 😉
