perfect present for Grandma

A couple of years ago we bought my Mother-in-law a digital photo frame, and put some pictures onto a card for her. I thought it would be a nice idea to give her an SD card with some more recent pictures.

but then the SD card looked like such a boring (and small) present!

So I decided to make a box. To make it more personal I made the lid from photos of the children. I easily made this on "my craft studio" software by dropping photos on resizing and tilting. I printed this onto card to make the lid and made a base to fit in plain card. I then made a little niche (I will work out some proper measurements some time for how to do this, but I just made this up as I went along). I then decorated this up like a scrapbook page (my MIL is a scrapbooker)


  1. What a lovely idea, Joanne - the packaging makes all the difference. Well done, you!

  2. And, boy, I bet she will LOVE it! I know I do

    Seasons Greetings


  3. How clever... and thoughtful too! Jo x

  4. Too cool! That is a perfect present!
