Despite the pair being 10 and 12 now, the mum decided to use the lockdown to organise the cards using frames from The Range, which cost just under £4 each. 

She cut out the cards in the shape of a hexagon, deciding to do it by hand using a stencil after finding hand punches were pricey. 

The mum shared her incredible creation to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where her handiwork has racked up more than 3,600 likes. 

She said: “Not a purchase but, I made these from the congratulations cards received when my children were born. 

“They are 12 & 10 now. 

“I cut the shapes by hand as punches are quite expensive, I did use a template. 

“The frames were less than £4 from the range.”

Hundreds of mums have commented on the post, claiming they’ve been inspired to create something similar. 

One mum said: “Love this idea. I have all 3 of my babies cards I may have to do this.”

Another wrote: “These are beautiful what a gorgeous idea.”

A third said: “They are beautiful. What a wonderful way to remember a wonderful memory.”

While this person added: “What a great idea. Looks beautiful.”
