A few years ago I made my first wife bound book. It was a gift for the daughter in law of the head pastor of our rather large church, she had been in a small ladies group I was in when they announced their pregnancy. I worked tirelessly on it and I was pretty novice at the time. I made 52 pages (26 front and back) with two baby onsies on each page with stamped journaling on one and the other for a photo.
I went a little easier with this version. I used chipboard that is fairly thin so I tripled it for the covers and just one for each of the internal pages. I got a chip decor letter and used my cricut cartridge that is from Hobby Lobby for those letters and designs and cut out a pattern to cover the letter. Glued that on top of a pattern papered cover, and then Proceeded to cover all the internal pages. I did use Authentiques Cuddle for boys paper line. It came out very cute. I put 2 cutaparts on the pages as well (not in the photos! Did them later)
The mommy LOVED the book and looks forward to filling it with photos. Thought I would share it with you all.
Let me know what you think. Not too shabby for a few hours of work.
