All of Rowan's grandparents live far away along with most of his extended family. My parents live in Florida while my husband's are in England. This weekend, I designed this little flash card book to keep all their faces and the memories from recent visits present in Rowan's mind. He doesn't get to see them as much as we would all like, but with phone calls, Skype and lots of pictures we hope to keep them a part of his everyday life. I will be adding the rest of the family to this book too.
You can either laminate the cards like I did or just glue them to cardboard. This makes them nice a sturdy for active toddlers.
Family Flash Card Book
5" x 7" (or any size) print outs on card stock of your family members
Cardboard (if you are laminating you don't need this)
Scissors or Exacto knife
You can download a printable of the cover design (5"x 7") here!
Print out your photos on card stock at the desired size. Trim pictures.
If you are mounting on cardboard, cut cardboard to the desired size and glue to the back of your pictures. If you are laminating, you can skip this step and laminate your cards.
Punch 3 holes on the side of your pictures and link together with rings.
Do you all have family close by, or are you like us and have family far away?
