Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. So what kind of gift can the grandkids give their Mimi when she lives 7,100 miles away from them? Picture bookmarks!
This is another idea I saw on Pinterest and just knew I had to do. You can click here to see the original idea. You can also use this idea and make some fun magnets for your refrigerator, which I haven't tried... yet.
First of all, I took pictures of the kids and had them pretend they were holding onto a rope. This didn't take much persuasion at all. They were more-than-willing little actors and enjoyed coming up with their own poses. In fact, I later had so many pictures it was difficult to decide between them all. However, I ended up trying to choose three different, unique poses for each child.
I then cut the pictures out and made a little customized flower pot for the baby, so that he did not look like his body was cut off. This worked out well!
I then had the pictures laminated at our local
Kinko's printing shop, cut 'em out again, cut little holes in 'em, and added some beautiful rope-like string I already had.
