Crafty Gift Idea

Exactly two years ago I presented my husband with a collage of our favorite restaurants in New York. He still claims it is his favorite birthday gift ever! I sit here a year after moving from New York with tons of business cards and match boxes but no time to make another a collage. Going through these cards makes me want to finish this collage sooner than later. We did a lot of wining and dining during our last year in New York hence why these cards did not make the first collage.

 Take 2.

So if you are looking to save money but want to do something special for your significant other, this is a great gift. Just make sure you collect the cards in secrecy. I laid out all of the cards before I glued them on a cardboard which fit perfectly into the frame. TIP-the matchboxes give the collage a 3-D look so collect both business cards and matchboxes.
