 I turned and twisted a few things - but it's pretty much there!

Mother's Day Memory Folder & Card!

Sometimes you need more than a card to express how much your mom means to you. This beautiful little folder tells her five different ways, and it doubles as a hanging organizer to keep business and appointment cards, coupons, or little mementos. The pockets are the perfect size for Project Life cards, so this can also be used as a Brag Book later. Create a coordinating card and a napkin holder or gift box topper to make Mom’s day extra special. This would make a fun “class with purchase” or a girls’ night out event.
