Sage and I signed up for a "Rock & Read" class at the public library, where we learn songs and poems for part of the time and then for 45 minutes, the children play while the moms make a book.
I got the idea to make a counting book, but also wanted to make something Christmas-y during the class (since it has a Christmas theme). But the counting book idea stayed with me, so I made it this past week at home.
(It was suppose to be a Christmas gift, but she caught me taking pictures of it the other day, so I gave it to her right away. She loves it!)
I thought I'd share it with you.
It's a 6x6" chipboard book, where I cut the pieces of chipboard myself and glued the pages to it. The pages are made up mostly of patterned paper-- I think I used almost every brand there is! (What a super way to use up some scraps!)-- and chipboard. I also added some KI gems to page one.
I had planned to bind it with a bind-it-all, but it was too thick, so I used binder rings instead.
