Tilda & Co Challenge 27..Thinking of Others.
This little baby gift book was my entry for the Tilda & Co. challenge. It's not very big, but what new mother wouldn't love to get this mini book to document the first days of her new baby's life? I made the 'pages' from thin chipboard coasters, and bound the whole thing with my Bind-it-All. There's even a little envelope on the back cover for a little memento, maybe the baby bracelet from the hospital, a little journaling spot to jot down the baby's name, date of birth, weight, etc. I put a couple of blank pages to paste down some photos, too. The colors I chose were pretty gender neutral, periwinkle and soft greens so it could be for a boy or girl. The little charm hanging from the ribbon was made from shrink plastic.
