Birthday Card for Granny

This weekend my husband's grandmother is having a birthday. I made her a card that doubles as a mini album. I used one of my favorite mediums, a cereal box. It's very simple. I just cut two 10 by 5 rectangles from the box and fold each in half. Then, I set them up at a zig zag and stapled them together.

After that I just added paper, mats, photos, and embellishments that I cut from scrapbooking paper. I inked the mats and paper with blue ink to match my "cool pool" color scheme.

My favorite thing about this card/album is that either side when closed can be seen as the front. So you are looking at the beginning no matter which way its turned.

The pictures were taken a week ago at this same grandmother's pool. So she not only gets a cute birthday card, but memories from the time she got to spend with her great grandson's this summer!
