So many moms worked very hard to plan this school gala, and I wanted to surprise them with little gifts.
3×3 handmade mini card albums.
For 17 committees and volunteers. 10+ sheets of papers each for 10 teachers/staff to sign. Lots and lots of paper cutting!
Bookbinding technique learned from Journals 3 Ways workshop by Karla Dudley.
My adorable daughter, heehee =)
I put photos of committee members’ kids on their album.
I asked the teachers/staff to sign it.
I made all the inserts first and still had no clue how I was going to make the cover. Then, I saw this card on the October Afternoon blog, and completely fell in love with the simple yet beautiful layout. I used the apple punch instead since the green apple was part of the gala theme.
I wanted to surprise the committees, but I was surprised to find how much they appreciated my little gesture. I am a card maker/paper crafter, but I didn’t know people love receiving handmade cards. So, I was thankful my time and effort was well spent.view:4240
