Go here to enter the Shabby Apple giveaway!
This is a quick and easy project, but something that, at least in our house, will be getting a lot of use! It's also something that we can easily add to as more family members are added.
What you need:
- scrapbook paper
- double sided tape (or some adhesive)
- laminating pouches/laminator
- wallet sized pictures
Start off by cutting your scrapbook paper. My laminate pouches were for 4x6 sized pictures, so I cut my paper to 4x6.
Cut all of your names out using your trusty Silhouette in vinyl. You could obviously just use stickers for this part, but I like to use my Silhouette whenever possible! Plus, I have lots of fun fonts on my computer, so it was fun to make them all different so easily.
Put your picture on the scrapbook paper using your adhesive.
Cut out frames using your Silhouette in vinyl. Put the frame over the picture.
** Do not use transfer paper for this part or else it will stick to your picture and ruin it. (Not that this happened to me or anything. It's a good thing wallets come with two pictures.)**
Then put the name under the picture. You can use transfer paper here if you are really careful not to let it touch your picture anywhere. (Isn't my nephew so super stinking cute? We call him Huddy Buddy.)
Here's all of the cards up to this point. (We make some good looking kids in our families!)
Warm up your fun, new laminator! (I'm loving having all of these toys!)
Place your card in the laminating pouch. Adjust it so you have the same distance around the card.
Feed it through your laminator.
It's so satisfying.
Look at all those fun cards!
Punch holes in them and put them on a split ring.
Now you've got a fun, personalized book for your kid(s)!
