Personal Gift

For Christmas I wanted to get personal gifts for my two baby nieces and Emmy. I searched the internet for custom board books, but they were all $25 or more. That is fine, but it seemed pretty pricey for a 12 page book. I came across the company Blank Slate Books where they send you a blank board book and labels for you to create your own. The price was right – 4 books for $30. So I decided to make my own. You can use their template online or they have a PowerPoint file you can download and print from.

Now, I will say these aren’t going to be nearly as awesome as a book that has the photo imprinted onto the page, but it was what I was going for (and the price was right)!

Here is the book I created for Emmy:

I used the PowerPoint template and then just printed it on my home computer. Again, it’s not perfect, but Emmy and my nieces love it!

Such a precious and thoughtful idea.

And can we talk about how beautiful Emmy is???

Maddie told me she's jealous of her hair....or maybe I'm jealous bc M is still rocking a mullet!!

I LOVE this idea so much! Do you just glue them to the book? If so, what type of glue did you use? I can't get over how fast Emmy is growing...she is such a doll!!
