Thanksgiving 2019 Photo Collage Memory Card

We had a very relaxed Thanksgiving this year with just the four of us. 

We wore comfy pants.

We ate ham.

And just for fun, we made paper turkeys.

I asked each family member to style two turkeys from our Feathered Animals set using their own creativity. No rules or restrictions. I then took a photo of each family member holding their turkeys and documented it all on a Photo Collage card.

The Photo Collage is really the perfect crossover die between cardmaking and scrapbooking. This card could be added to a larger scrapbook page or mini-album, or it could be mailed to someone as the perfect little mini-memory card. 

The card measures 5.5" square when closed. For the front of the card I used our Alphabet and Numbers set plus the Autumn Elements set.

As the card opens the Photo Collage starts to twist and expand.

Once open, all 8 turkeys and the small photos of us holding our turkeys are revealed. It was a bit of a challenge to find spots for 12 frames without catch points, but I eventually got it.

The Tiny Accessories sets were also out on the table in case anyone wanted to accessorize. As you see below, we have a Saints turkey (John's favorite American football team) a pilgrim turkey, and a graduation turkey.

This could be a fun activity for other holidays, too, styling bunnies for Easter or reindeer for Christmas. Here are the products I used on my Thanksgiving version. The papers are all older ones from my stash.
