A Round Of Thanks

We are busy, busy, busy in the jojoebi camp at the moment but I thought I would share with you the cards I made yesterday. I wanted to send a pile of thank you cards but I don't really have the time to sit down and write proper letters to go with them all and just scribbling a quick 'thanks' in a card doesn't seem quite right to me. So, this is what I came up with. It is easy to do and I am sure you could think of other uses (I already played around with Christmas colours but then decided I couldn't be doing with Christmas in this heat!)

You will need:
coloured card
punch
brad

Cut out 5 circles each one a bit smaller than the last, I used my new fancy toy. I mixed up the colours but always had the biggest and smallest the same.


Place the circles on top of each other, like so...

Punch a hole in the top

Push a brad through and open the legs to secure

Done.

get addicted and make more and more and more....

Then write on your message, hiding the secret messages under each circle

and how do you keep the little monkey out of the way whilst you are doing all this?
Give him a pile of circles, a piece of black card and some glue....
I love how this came out, I am tempted to make one myself!

  2. Well, as you asked specifically, 'hello'! I've been reading your blog for a while (via MIJ originally) but I don't think I've ever left a comment (hangs head in shame....).

    My little monkey is 16 months old and I recently got 'How to Raise An Amazing Child' on your recommendation. I'm looking forward to doing all kinds of activites with him as he gets a bit older.

    Keep up the good work!
