When I was working on these gifts for our sweet little friend, I had some leftover papers with her picture on them. Rather then throw them away, I made two extra gifts. Unplanned gifts, as it turns out, can be quite fun. I had one sheet of A3 paper with a photo collage, and two small photo collages leftover from the Shaker Toys.
These were really so very easy to make. I simply ran the paper through the laminator, then trimmed the excess laminate. If you don’t have access to a laminator, I think contact paper will work just fine. The little one LOVED the placemat, and I gave the bookmarks to her parents so that they could have some fun. If I had known what a big hit the placemat would be, I would have made a whole set. Maybe for her 2nd birthday.
