I’m super excited to be participating in a fun Valentine’s Day Blog Hop with some fabulous bloggers.
I’m sharing a fun little photo book I made for my wonderful hubby to send him on the ship. And like usual, it was super easy to put together.
All you need are a few of your favorite pictures, cardstock, double sided tape and some ribbon. I had my favorite Instagram pictures printed at Walgreens so they were already 4×4. You could print out 4×6 pictures and cut them to 4×4 or make a book that is 4×6.
Let’s get started.
Step 1: Cut 4×8 inch strips of cardstock. Fold each strip in half and adhere together using the double sided tape.
Step 2: Adhere your pictures to each square.
Step 3: Tape apiece of ribbon to the center of the front book. Place the ribbon so it is about 5 inches long on the right and about 20 inches long on the left so it wraps around and ties.
Step 4: Print out the cover printable (available HERE and HERE) and adhere to the front of the book. I created two because I couldn’t decide which color scheme I wanted. I decided to go with the more colorful cover.
Step 5: The final step is to fold the book closed and tie the ribbon in a bow.
Such a fun little gift to make. I think I’m going to make one for the grandparents also.
Now head over and check out these other great Valentine’s Day crafts and recipes.
