I made these little hardbound books for my nieces for Christmas. I got these cute books at a local bookstore. They are just, plain, unmarked, hardbound books. I decorated them with scrapbook paper, and then covered them with contact paper to protect them. I typed up a bunch of "about me" phrases on envelope labels. I stuck one on each page for my nieces to write about/ draw a picture.
Here's a couple detail shots. I bet you remember those hedgehogs huh?
