Father's Day - Folding picture gift - A tutorial

This is a sponsored post*

We're getting organised early for Father's Day this year. I hope you enjoy our Father's Day Folding Picture Gift Tutorial. If you make one of these with your children, we'd love to see your results :)
If you don't get chance to make your father's day cards, you can get some really lovely ones at Hallmark cards.

To Daddy - do not read until after Father's Day!

The girl's love drawing and writing and I'm always finding pictures or notes left for us lying around.
I thought it would be nice to save any special ones and give them as a gift for Father's Day. I remembered a craft I'd done with the children in an infants school I was placed in when doing my nursery nurse training and knew the girls would love to make these for daddy.

All you need is a piece of A4 paper and some card.

Cut two luggage tag shapes from the piece of card then get the child/ren to draw a special picture for daddy or print out some special photos if they're too young to draw.
They can also decorate the card pieces if you like.

Fold the paper, concertina style.
 Then fold in it three
 Glue a piece of card to each end of the paper

so it can be opened out
Make holes on each side and tie some pretty ribbon through them. 
 And there you have it, a lovely keepsake for Daddy :)
Today's 365 photo
 I'm going to let Ella decorate this one and get KayCee to make her own.

We've got more crafts to do before Father's Day; I can't wait to see Ant open them all :)
