One of my favorite places to visit is the Minnesota State Fair. We don't go every year, but we did go this year. We pretty much eat our way through the fair. My favorites are the corn dogs (the ones made out of corn bread batter - yum!), mini donuts, cheese curds and fresh strawberries with cream. My husband's favorites are the foot long hot dogs with grilled onions, deep fried candy bars on a stick and cotton candy (yes, cotton candy).
This year we got to tag along with our grandsons Max and Sam. Which meant we spent some time in the Kiddie Midway. Here's some pictures of the day...
Their favorite ride was the Ferris Wheel. It was the first time either of them went on it and they really enjoyed it. Check out their smiles...priceless!
I wanted them to have a little token of the day, so I put together a fun little "picture on-a-stick". Attached it to a simple easel card and put it in the mail for a fun little surprise for them. I think they are gonna love it! Hmm...I should have made two of them...one for each. What was I thinking?!
Easel cards are SO easy. ANY size card can be turned into an easel card.
1. Fold any size card in half
2. Then fold the top of your card in half again (folding to the inside of your card)
3. Attach a little "stop" to the inside of your card (for the easel to rest again)
4. Viola...instant easel card!!
Normally, I would have attached a picture or decorative front layer to the bottom half of the outside of the card. But for this card - I used the retired Horizontal Slot Punch to create two "holes" to hold my "picture-on-a-stick" to the card. This way, they can pull the stick out and play with it. he he!!
