I’ve had so many projects to get done lately and guess what? So have my kids. Guess what else? Each one of them has come to me and asked if I could make a little something for them to use in one of their projects. I’ve made a tiny book using the Cricut, bound a poetry report using the Cinch, made report titles using the Cricut and today made 25 menus using the Silhouette Cameo to be used as a timeline in a history class. Whew! Now that that’s out of the way, I can start my work. Wait. No. Now I’m ready for a nap. KIDS!! LOL! 😉
The menu idea worked so well I wanted to share it with anyone who might be needing to make a timeline. I used Lori Whitlock’s menu placecard file. They were easy to put together once DH figured out how. Why him? Dude. I was soooo busy! He jumped right in and started folding them all. He’s a good guy. 😉
These stand up really well on their own. That’s very important, especially when dealing with 25 of them.
I didn’t do my kids project, I just made these menus.
I’m glad my kid did this himself but I would have loved to make numbers and do more with the information area. Whatever. Let it go, Joy. LOL! Again, it wasn’t Mom’s project it was Kid’s project. I do have to give huge thanks to Lori for making such an awesome Menu Placecard file. It really saved the day when it came to needing a standing timeline. You WOULD NOT BELIEVE all the stuff my kiddo had dreamed up for holding the date and info prior to my menu idea. Let’s just say…I’m glad I got off easy with the menus. LOL!
P.S. This was another time that my VERY FAVORITE cheap (but heavyweight) paper came in handy. I used it to make all of these menus. Here’s a link: Wausau Paper 250 sheet pack.
