Every year, I would create custom holiday greeting packages for my clients. It is a love-hate relationship: While I love doing something clever for my clients and remind them that I am thinking about them, I am very creative, and they should give me a call for their next project (ha!), it is very hard to find something clever, design a card that echos the gift, and put them altogether in a cute packaging, all within a budget.

With a work project going on vigorously this month, I wasn’t even sure if I would have been able to complete and submit for “Make Art That Sells” Bootcamp‘s assignment this month.

I wasn’t happy with what I submitted, but participating is better than nothing!

Here is a mini-DIY project for you and hopefully it will help you on the next Valentine’s Day for your little one. Free printables are available for download.
Happy Birthday my big boy!

I have seen and liked the idea where you take a photo of your child, and make a list of what they enjoy at the moment, so I incorporated it with the collage too. It will be fun to look back!
