Description

Mini I made for my daughter - this will be for New Year's. I saw a card on Pinterest and thought it would make a cute wallhanging. It didn't take too much to come up with a way to make the flaps and this came together in just a few hours. Winter is a great time to have a rainbow on your wall and I snuck in a secret message to her under one of the flaps. Hopefully it will brighten up the dreary January days while she's away from home.

Will post a picture of the finished quilt tomorrow when I can take a daylight photo

I just love this...I have seen this flap idea on Pinterest as well and love it!

Skynme

I love this and the sweet little messages you left for her. Such an Amazing Mom!!!

Mymble

Love how you came up with this- and the message and label- and the Dan Bennett fabric in there- perfect- love it!

True Thanks Mary. I found the card designer on instagram and tagged her - she "liked" it

HawkFan

Thank you Skynme - I just wish I could be around to see when she opens these. She'll be back at school and leaving for her training trip on Jan 1.

Mymble Thanks Margaret. You know I love Dan Bennett fabric. I'm trying to decide how to clue her in on the message under the flap without telling her too much.

True

HawkFan write her a riddle;-)

You ARE such a cool mom. Stick a candy bar under the flap so she's forced to look under it. Money always helps too!
