Yesterday, Jennifer introduced us to one of the special albums she made for her son. (See the post here.) Here are the details and supplies she used in the book.
Some notes are tucked in envelopes, others hidden behind flaps.
I’m way more into embellishments than my 20-year-old son, so I tried to pace myself throughout using just a few stickers, baker’s twine, and brads. I thought the look of classic photo corners meshed well with the combination of Tim Holz and 7Gypsies materials I used throughout.
I found some fun letterpress cards and envelopes at Paper Source that had preprinted “I am thankful for:” on them. Each book contained two of these. My husband and I had fun filling them in for each of our children. It was interesting for us to read each other’s notes to the kids to see what qualities in them we most appreciated.
I love that the notes are in our handwriting. Some of my most treasured possessions are letters written to me by my parents and grandparents. It means a great deal to me (and the kids) that my husband is committed to writing several notes to each of the children.
I hope the books will be a lasting reminder of what our children mean to us.
