I've had babies on the brain lately. It could be because spring has sprung and baby stuff is EVERYWHERE. It could be because my BFF Jenni is due with a baby girl this summer. Or maybe because my teeny-tiny, itsy-bitsy newborn baby girl is turning SIX in one month...
SIX!! She's practically a grown up.
With babies on the brain, I thought I'd share a crafty project I made when Gracie was in her baby days. A personalized baby book, made with photographs, scrapbook paper, and magazines. Super simple.
I started by writing a poem:
Baby - From Head to Toe
Baby has a button nose
Two blue eyes that open and close
She has ten fingers
and she has ten toes
Kissable lips like the bud of a rose
She has two ears
A body wearing clothes
And a little belly button for...
(Okay, I'm not the world's greatest poet, I admit, but it's not too bad, and if you plan on making one of these for the baby in your life, it can be easily changed to suit your needs)
The cover is the above photo - scrapbook paper, photo, letters cut from a magazine - and here is the rest of the book:
A quick and easy project! And if you want to make it nice and durable, head on over to your local copy shop and have it laminated and coil bound - you can get it done at Office Max for only a couple of bucks.
