I was going thru my Granny's stuff and I came across this leaflet. I can remember getting homemade fudge in a little box she made from old greeting cards. This had to be where she got the idea from. I thought you guys would like it.

Oh!  I think my grandmother must have seen that too, because she had a lamp shade that was made along these same lines.

Great find!

You brought back some nice memories- my grandmother made all her greeting cards into gift boxes for birthday and Christmas presents.
