  2. Wow,I always wondered how those were made… now I just have to do one or more of my own… THANKS!

    Thank you!! Really enjoyed your video.

  5. Love it. Make good party favors too.

  6. how nice are they! I havn’t seen these before, great idea 🙂

  7. We made something like this in a larger form for little gifts to the Prom attendees. It was a lot of work but the kids could put their pics in there. That was years ago. It’s nice to know that I can use the Cricut to embellish the outside. Thank you.
