Below is the Accordion Bookmark card that I made for my husband last year for Father’s Day. The papers used are called “Weathered” from Stampin’ Up!’s “Timeworn Collection” of background papers. They are different wood grain textured papers that are *very* realistic!
The “card” itself is a 12 x12 sheet scored in half to make it 6 inches high and scored at 3 inch intervals for 4 panels.
What I did for the one I made for my husband (top) is have each panel feature one child, three photos total each child… the two on the front of the panel are of them at approx. 2 years old and then 5 years old and then current age on the pull out bookmark. They each wrote a message to their dad on the back of the bookmark.
We made one for our Grads & Dads class this month (see second sample). It was a bit plainer to allow for more journaling.
