This was a really fun gift to make and it was actually quite simple. And, with coupons it was very reasonably priced at just under $12. I made a scrapbook full of page templates so that the photos can be easily added afterwards.
I bought a small scrapbook, stickers, die cuts and construction paper.
I pulled out the color paper I wanted to use and cut them to fit the pages of the book.
Then, I simply had fun arranging and re-arranging each page until deciding on the final design.
At the end of the book was a slot for a photo CD. In there I stuck all the extra stickers and die cuts in case more are wanted to be added later. They all fit perfectly.
I wanted to keep each page simple, not too busy, so that after the fact the main focus is the photos. We added a note in the front, but that will eventually be replaced with a photo.
I love it and this was really fun. A great gift for all ages!
