Magic carousel

I was so happy with this little interactive card/book that I had to share it. Made from card stock I have cut out 6 small cards, then with the spellbinders cut a square on each card both sides except 2 which I cut only one side. then you cut a slope on the top of each card while folded. Assemble each card together with tape slipping in a narrow piece of card in the centre of each window also leave the top un stuck so you can slip in the roof later. the roof is just a trinangle (sized to suit your card)with 2 flaps either side cut out 6 from double sided paper, and score along flap..tape into the top where each card joins and where you have left it unstuck. Add some carousel horses, I have used an old Whale of a punch, glitter and covers, dont forget some ribbon to close it, a few flowers etc and there you have a wonderful gift for a new mum, she can then fold it up and pop it away, after the novelty has worn off, or baby is walking.
