They were a year in the making. Well, a year's worth of guilt and a week's worth of work, but the on-the-go storyboards for my nieces and nephews are done!
I couldn't be more pleased about how these turned out. They each had a million little steps that drove me crazy doing them 4 times over again (one for each family and one for two sweet girls I know). Nothing difficult, just time consuming. Again - I fail at working in production line fashion.
The story that accompanies the mats is The Gingerbread Baby. It and the felt pieces are contained in the front pocket. The house, hills, and clouds are permanently attached to the storyboard. I'm sure this background could lend itself to another story and set of characters.
The felt shapes include, for those of you familiar with the story, include Matti, the gingerbread baby on a cookie sheet or a cookbook - meant to serve as either, a cat, a dog, a goat, a well, two girls with their braids tied together, a pig, a fox, and a gingerbread house to capture the gingerbread baby.
Here they are wrapped up
Wrapping paper from Kmart (Martha Stewart). I hope they are enjoyed on may car trips and Sundays at church!
