stomp, stomp, roar, roar

here come the dinosaurs!

Since discovering dinosaurs in the local park, BabyEbi has become a bit obsessed so I decided to make him some dino 3 part cards and of course a wallet to hold them in....(no, that isn't a kangaroo on the front, it is supposed to be a Parasaurolophus!

With the wallets I made for the art and fruit cards I found that babyEbi (and erm, myself too) would sometimes pick up the wallet upside down and then all the cards would fall out, so this time I made a flap to cover the cards and hopefully hold them in....

I made a set of cards with just the picture, a set with the picture and name, a set of name cards and a set on info cards. I used the clipart from learning page , you have to sign up to access a lot of the file but it is free and there is some great stuff on there.
Although the ribbon ties I have used on other wallets look very pretty, babyEbi can't do and undo them by himself yet, so I used a dino button and an elastic hook so he can open and close it without my help.

Right, I am not sure if this is going to work, it seems to on my computer but if someone could try it out and leave a comment to say if it works or not, that would be lovely. *NOTE* - system does work :o)

OK, go over to my flickr you should see a set called "3 part cards" on the right-hand-side, click on it, you can then click on the 3 part cards icon again or the dino cards icon.

Click on one of the pictures, to the right there is a link in blue "different sizes" click on the link

Above the picture it should say "download the medium size" you could use this but you will get a BETTER quality image if you click on the "original" size - near the top of the page and then download it. (repeat for other files)

You should have the jpg file on you computer to print out as you like.....fingers crossed.
