How to make a giant card using an Elmer’s tri-fold board that contains printables, activities, and even tickets for a show. It makes the perfect gift for kids.

Disclosure: I was compensated for this project as a member of the #couchcritics and #gluenglitter communities on Collective Bias.

I'm taking the kids to see Gnomeo and Juliet for Valentine's Day (with thanks to Collective Bias).  So, when they asked me to come up with a giant Valentine's Day card using an Elmer's Tri-Fold Display Board I knew immediately what I wanted to do.

Along the sides I created pockets and popped in fun activities and printables that I found on the Gnomeo and Juliet website.  I put pretend tickets in an envelope for the gnome to hold as their gift.

The kids will be so excited to find out that they are seeing the movie next week.

Hello Tonya this is awesome. I am a Pre-K teacher and you can’t find very cute crafts for these little guys. Have you ever considered selling the templates for this. I would buy it in a heart beat. Thank you again for the inspiration.
