Little Pressie for Mother-in-law

Hmmmm - two posts in one day...worrying!  This is a little brag card - it will have a photo on either side of the of my child of course!  The tag shows the paper on the other side of the card - its reversible!  Now for the fun bit...its made from a squashed toilet roll middle - yep really!  Saw this somewhere on my travels, but it was done as a book (by fixing a few of them together) - but just wanted to keep this really simple for her bag - she doesnt do with fancy fripperies!  This was so simple, so straightforward - little tip ... iron the toilet roll middle flat (and microwave if you are concerned about the germs!).  Would change it next time, would use one piece of card all round (I had to colour the exposed edges with a sharpie).  Would also use eyelets to finish off better.  Hey its all a learning process!  Will possibly decorate the front when she arrives later but need to chat to her about what she would like (dont want it being a pain in her bag!).  Will definitely do another one of these sometime!  Oh and the papers are stampin up - I won them in some candy from Carol Houghton x
