A Mother's Day Card

I made this Mother's Day card for both my mom and Matt's mom.

You can easily make it for anyone for any occasion.

I began by cutting two sheets of 8"x11" cardstock, each to 5 1/2"x11". Then I folded each section into thirds.

Using a gluestick, I glued the two together so that they made one accordion with five sections.

I printed five photos, 4"x6".

I cut each photograph so that it would fit on a section.

And I glued the photographs onto the cardstock.

I made sure that I glued the photographs close to the top of each section. That way I had plenty of room to write below each photograph.

Under each photograph, I wrote a reason why we are thankful for our moms. If your child is old enough, he/she can do the writing.

This is such a simple craft that makes a beautiful card and keepsake.
