Last week I found this wonderful Blog site where you can link up two projects each week. I love this idea as it makes me look at my work for the week and pick out what I really think is my best work. This is not always easy as we are often times are own worst critics and I can be guilty of this. So for those of you who love to craft and blog check the site out above.
This week Jalisa posted a wonderful Father's Day Card and asked for more FD ideas. This idea popped into my head and I had a blast making this for my son in law. Before I retired just a year ago I made little books with my kids by folding paper and cutting out the corners. So the directions for you as shown in the pic below are to score a 12 x 12 piece of plain card stock at 4" and 8 ". Then flip and do the same the other direction. You will end up with 9 boxes. Cut the four corners out and you are ready to decorate your little book. However I wanted to make my book a little larger so I scored at two pieces of paper, This time I scored the first side at 4" and
6 " and the second side at 6 " only. Then I overlapped the two pieces and glued down the center three rectangles. I now have have 4 x 6 pages. I cut out the 4 corners and I am ready to decorate. For my title I used Mickey Font. The rest of words were typed on computer. The cuts are from Paper Doll Dress up and Everyday Paper doll. There are tons more ideas you could use for this card. All figures were cut at 4 inches. Added a funny little clip to hold it shut for now.
The cool thing about it is this can be opened in any order and it doesn't matter.
Anyway I can't wait to give this to my son in law. Guess I better get busy on one for the other son in law too.
