Baby Shower Book

My best friends niece had her baby and I made her this book for her baby shower. I hope you enjoy looking through the pictures.

I don't buy cardstock. I just use cereal boxes or whatever else I have in the house. 

After cutting out all of the pages, I used some light purple paint to paint around the edges so that you couldn't see the brown or whatever color of cardstock. 

Then I cut out the papers to go on these pages. You have to mirror the image to get the paper to cover the back.

This is what I came up with at the end. 

I don't have a bind it all or a cinch so I just used my crop a dile and put some big eyelets in the covers and put some ribbon on it. I also added the name of the baby on the front. 

Thanks for looking. :) And I'm so sorry I don't remember who I downloaded this cut file from. But If it was you, let me know please so i can give credit where credit is due.

You asked me what part of New Mexico I was from and I cannot seem to find an area on your blog to privately answer. I am living in Ruidoso, New Mexico. Are you in Farmington?
