Approximate Time 2 Hours
The second page title is from a scrap of the patterned paper and framed with scraps of bazzel. I added a spiral clip for interest and glued the vellum envelope on for maybe a snip of baby's hair.
The third page has a two different colors of bazzel to make a double mat, again inked. Two buttons with jute cord complete the page.
Fourth page has a bazzel mat inked and attached with 4 plain colored brads. Also a plain bazzel blank title embellished with red jute.
The fifth page has a mat hanging from two tiny clothes pins which are attached with glue dots. I used alphabet stamps to stamp on baby's initial and birth date.
The sixth and seventh pages have a mat with a torn edge from scraps and inked. A faux bow with ribbon embellishes the pages.
On the eigth page, I use bazzel scraps in squares inked in different colors. I used pop up dots to attach a torn picture from patterned paper scraps.
The ninth page has a double mat embellished with a ribbon and dragonfly brad.
The tenth page I used scraps of bazzel to make a odd shaped mat. Then I placed a piece of rickrack and a button to the mat using glue dots. A baby sticker is used to embellish the page.
The last page has another bazzel mat with a torn patterned paper edge and a baby boy sticker. I also put a satin flower in the corner using a glue dot.
The back of the book is just torn pictures from the patterned paper and inked.
To hold the book together and as hinges, I tied ribbon through each hole that was already in the boards. I tied in a longer piece of jute with buttons laced on to the top hinge ribbon to add a little more fun.
All in all this was not very expensive. I used a lot of scraps and things that I already had in my scrapbooking desk. You can really use your imagination and stuff you already have to make a book like this.
