My husband’s and my anniversary is right around the corner. Every year, I struggle with what to get him. He’s one of those people that if he wants it, he just buys it. So this year, I wanted to make him something handmade and special. Something to remind him of the great years we have had together. I decided to make this accordion photo card. It’s small; he can keep it in his desk at work, and pull it out any time to look at it.
