Fitting in Fitness in Kamloops: “Don’t knock it ’till you try it”

Miranda Brown is a homeschooling Mama of six beautiful children.

Paper Wallet For Dad

This activity is brought to you by Dawnica Flatt.  Dawnica is a Kamloops mom, Stampin Up demonstrator, Early Childhood Educator and new business owner with Snug-Glee Bumz Diaper Service (coming soon!).

This is a neat project to make with the kids.  It can then be used to present a gift of money, as a gift card holder or the gift itself!  I found it online and remember making similar wallets when I was younger.  Your older child can follow the instructions or you can create the wallet and have your toddler decorate it especially for Daddy!
