DIY baby book

My best friend just had a baby and during her pregnancy she had asked me to make a baby book. She is the first one of my friends to have a baby so I had no Idea what people put in one, I looked at a bunch of them online and combined different pages and ideas I liked so here is my version of a baby book. Enjoy

This is the front, and back covers of the book, and the side binding I wrote the baby name. On the covers I drew a picture with fabric markers and wrote a quote from the Wizard of oz on the other side. The inside panel was a little dirty so I just stuck a page from an old book to the flap.

The first page is just a title page, the second page I wrote a quote about motherhood, the third page I drew a silouhette of a pregnant woman and left a spot on her belly for the ultrasound photo, the fourth page is an about mom page with room for a photo.

The fifth page is an about my dad page, the sixth page is a my moms parents (grandma and grandpa) page, the seventh page is a dads parents page (for grandma and grandpa), and the eight page is a during the pregnancy page. I left room on all the pages for a photo or two.

page nine is an it’s time page for the delivery day, page ten is all the information about your baby, page eleven is for the birth tags and the birth certificate, and page twelve is for the hand and foot prints (I didn’t stick the square cards onto the page so that the prints can be stamped and then placed for convenience). I left room on the pages for a couple of photos.

Page thirteen is a going home page, page fourteen is a my first year page with a poem and room for a photo, page fifteen is a first and second month page, page sixteen is a forth and fifth month page. All pages have room for photos.

Page seventeen is a sixth month, eighth month, and tenth month page (for the first year pages I didn’t do every month because I didn’t feel it was necessary but that is just my preference). Page eighteen is a first birthday page, and pages nineteen and twenty are blank pages to put photos to remember the event.

Page 21-23 are pages of firsts, empty pages left to put photos of first step, first book, whatever you want to remember. Page 24-27 are blank pages for just photos for whatever you didn’t put in the earlier pages but want to include in the book.

I had so much fun making this and made it so that my friend would have fun filling in all the pages. when you create yours try having as much fun as possible putting it together, it shows how much love you put into it.

Happy Craftings!!! xoxo
