Our neighbor turned 3 over the weekend and loves cars so what better than a race car birthday card?
Supplies: Stampin’ Up cardstock, inks & Celebrate stamp; Provo Craft sticker.
I had planned to give him a car to go along with it. He loves the Hot Wheels/Matchbox type cars and has quite the collection. That latter part is what stopped me … he has so many so maybe another car isn’t the best idea. Then I remembered 2 things. One, I’ve seen him get in and out of the car with hands overflowing with the cars he’s taken between home and his grandparents, etc. Two, a while back I saw a great tutorial on another blog for making a Car Caddy. Aha! The perfect gift for the boy that loves cars. Now he has a good way to tote a few with him and has a little play space to go along with it. I see another one of these in the future for my son. It’s just so cute!

Supplies: assorted fabric from my stash; interfacing (I used to stiffen it up since my fabrics were thinner than those in the tutorial); felt; thread; velcro; acrylic paint
