Word Books

I've also assisted with putting together some word books. Here are some of my creations.

  1. Jen, I've never attempted a word book, but have some files saved, including now your love one, what special things do I need to know about making one. Can you make one on a baby bug, materials used to make, etc.? Thanks for all your help! TammyKlein

  2. Tammy, Yes, I believe all of these books are baby bug compatible.
    ~ You will want to cut them from sturdy cardstock or chipboard. Cereal/cracker boxes work fine.
    ~ Purchase twice the paper if you work with chipboard since you will want to cover front and back.
    ~ When cutting the piece to cover the back just put your paper on your cutting mat face down.
    ~ If you don't have a Bind-It-All to bind it your self consider using hole punch and small binder rings or ribbon. Or you can take your creation to a local Kinko's and they will bind it for you. Make sure you request Wire Binding or you might end up with that ugly plastic comb stuff. (bleh!)

  8. Jen, thanks so much... I think I will use the LOVE book for me and my DH. I've never made one before so I'll see how it goes. I do have a bunch of cereal boxes that i've been saving for this reason. You're the best!!!
