I made a baby book to chronicle her growth ( 8 1/2″ x 12″).
I’ve made other baby books for friends using book board to make the covers but I was able to find a raw book board binder on clearance. I stripped the metal rings from the inside and finished as I did the other baby books.(see bottom of post).
The outside and inside were covered using 12 x 12 decorative paper and embellished with pearls, silk flowers, a dimensional butterfly, crystal lacquer, distressed inks and H2O paints. The inside sheets are stepped to provide a 1/2″ space to put the age (all done in excel and printed on a printer) and two hole punched so additional pictures can be added behind the designated growth pictures.
This is one of my favorite baby books I made for a friend who was expecting a granddaughter. I embellished the cover a lot with H20 paints, a silk flower, buttons and cardboard flowers.
