Guest Book

Admittedly, these photos are QUITE old, but I wanted to post them anyways. I made this guest book for my cousin several months ago, but just recently got the photos. I really liked the colors I got to work with!

About Me Books

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?

Golden Book Journal

I am so excited about this project! I have a whole stack of vintage children's books that I've collected from DI and garage sales. I turned this one into a cute little journal. I just took the book apart (they're only stapled together), and mixed the pages inside with my own paper. I actually kept most of the existing pages. This one's pretty simple, but you can embellish as much or as little as you like. I had it spiral bound at a local copy center. I think this could be a really cute gift idea. Especially for baby showers and such.

As Promised

These are the flowers I made for my nieces to wear in their hair. I'm so excited to give these to them for Christmas.

These ones are my favorite! I think they turned out so cute! I just kind of sculpted these out of fabric squares using an iron and hot glue.

Yet Another Rose Neclace

I purchased the chain from Target, and embellished it with pearls. I also attached some cute little charms beneath the flower: a bird, a leaf, and a key. I sculpted the flower and just glued it to the chain.
