Just cleaned up my desk/craft area and found this hidden away in the corner. I was supposed to be adding some more pictures to it and putting it back together . . . . ages ago. Now there’s a 11 month old sibling to add to it!! But since it’s a papercraft, and I haven’t posted about any of those, I thought I should share.
I used a hinge bound 7 x 7 scrapbook, it was from Creative Memories ages ago so I doubt you can still get one. There are so many school themed books out there I’m sure one of those could work.
I found the little poem online, not sure where but you can download the document here. (as soon as my techie hubby helps me)
I made each page a 2 page spread for the letter, except near the end I used 1 page for those less likely to fill up, like W, X, Y, Z. In hindsight I should have done that for Q as well, other than quilt I’ve been stuck on that one. I used a bunch of different coloured alphabet sticker sets, again from Creative Memories, but you could just by I sheet and use it for your entire book. I just had a lot of alphabet bits and pieces.
You can use scraps and bits of paper to decorate the pages. If you have punches it’s even easier.
This is also a great way to make use of sticker odds and ends you have lying around. I also find it handy for using up photos I printed but didn’t scrapbook, I have a bad habit of overprinting. I also print a lot of wallet sized pictures for this project, since the pages are smaller and I can fit 9 of those photos on a sheet it works out well.
I started writing the words next to the pictures as well. Depending on your child you may want to add words.
Guess I’d better get updating!
