I love it-can't wait to make one! However, I'm rather new to all of this so forgive my ignorance...what do you do with the library cards? Are you suppose to write stuff on them or put pictures on them ??

I made one for my son's teacher for teacher appreciation, and forgot to take pics before sending it to school. Your directions were so clear, and the visuals so helpful, that it took no time to whip it up. I do plan on making more! Thanks so much!!
