Create & Take: #1 Fan

Good morning bloggers and welcome to September Create & Take's on the blog. As usual every week we will post the Create & Take from the previous Friday to provide you with the products you will need and the instructions to make it.

This September Create & Take is going to be a 'family affair'. We will be making cards for family birthdays, making them versatile enough to be used for sons, daughters, nephews, nieces, mums, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents etc.

The first 2 weeks will be dedicated to the youngsters in the family, whilst the last 2 weeks will be celebrating the slightly older generations. We will be sure to cover both male and female so you can use them how you wish.

This week is for the male youngster in the family.....
