How to make a simple handmade thank you gift…

I am back with another video post for my series of small gifts, perfect for craft fairs, stocking fillers or, like this one, just a simple handmade thank you gift.

This post started with one card, and all of a sudden it developed to three cards from one layout. I just changed things up ever so slightly each time and ended up with three fabulous cards quickly and simply.
