MIM: Birthdays, Part I

How many birthday stamps do we all have? I have come to the conclusion that it's like black shoes: I can always use ONE MORE.

My grandma turns 90 next week, and I'm supposed to make a card that we (all 40+ of us) can sign. I don't do big. All of my crafy stuff is more the scale of normal sized cards. So I thought that I have a bunch of coasters I have never used, so I made a mini album. I figure if I make enough pages, there will be enough room for everyone to sign. And I have enough birthday stamps that I think I can make that many.

Here are the first few, done in the MIM challenge for this week: stamping on patterned paper.

I'm going to bind them together with a ring in the upper left corner. I'm not sure I've ever seen a birthday card like this before!

Except for the buttons, I think everything I used is PTI.

great idea! a friend and i did something similar for someone who lost a parent. we wanted everyone to be able to write a private message. we made a bunch of tags and gave them to her in a box after everyone wrote a message on their tag.
