Learning Fun

I am all about gifts that either require a little one to use their imagination or that teach them a little something. I also prefer handmade over store bought gadgets (as you can tell from my goal of making every single gift this year). So when i set out to plan Harvey’s christmas gifts a few different things came to mind, the first of which is a name book which would help him associate people’s names and faces. 

So here is what i did…

1) Picked photos of Harvey with his loved ones. (one for each that would go into the book)

2) uploaded to http://www.snapfish.com and then started a book project. (i used the $4 flip book for my template)

3) I then laid out each page and for the caption i typed the individual’s name in the picture. Inspired by the program baby can read i wanted to make each name in a different font but the template i used didn’t allow that. 

the layout went as follows:

Harvey (on the cover)



and Lastly Friends…

4) When i was all done i hit print and send. and there you have it a new fun book!
