Blank Books for Children

One of the homemade Christmas gifts
I made for the Frog Princess this year was
a simple set of blank books.
I don't know of a single kid who doesn't like to draw and write in their own books.
She loves making up stories and illustrating mini diaries, journals, etc.
I just stapled office paper together with some leftover
scrap-booking paper to make the covers.
By making them in assorted sizes and shapes
I was able to re-use more scraps and give her more artistic freedom.
This would be such a simple birthday gift
to make for a special child in your life.
Just think what Eric Carle or Tomie DePaolo would have done with these?

We have done this too! We will laminate our cover pages (FedEx/Kinkos) so there is a little stability to them! I will also go to Borders or barnes and noble and get a plain journal usually for about $4 and cover those with scrapbooking paper!

What a fab idea! That would be cute also for party favors.

Great idea! My girls love writing in little notebooks and I have a ton of scrapbooking papers. Thanks.

Creative and Curious Kids!

Oh, so cute! I bet she loved them. My kids are a little older but I bet my youngest would love to have some of these little gems, too! Great job. :)
