Groovin’ with the Go-to Gals: Easy as Pi

Did you know that today is Pi Day?  (For all you non-math majors, the Greek letter π is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.) Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th (3/14). Pi = 3.14. . . .

As much as I love math (Cough!  Cough!), I like to celebrate Pi Day a little bit differently.  I made a quick and easy pie gift set that’s sure to sweeten someone’s day!

I found some clipart online and added text to create a printable card front.  I then printed out the image onto various colors of cardstock.

You can find the pdf download here.

Once printed, I machine stitched a border around each card front and adhered the card front onto a different colored base.  (Always stitch before adhering card fronts to the card base to prevent stitch lines from showing on the inside of the card.)

Place it all in a tin and your card set will be as cute as pie!
