Cute Address Book

This week I thought it would be fun to make an adorable address book… With technology in this day and age, I hardly ever hand write anything anymore. Usually I just put addresses and important phone numbers in my iPhone. However, there is just something about your personal handwriting… I just wanted to get back to writing a few things down.

I also thought this would be helpful to have by the phone when the nanny is here since she doesn’t have the contacts in my phone.

Here is a view of the back of the book.

Here is a view of the inside pages. I tried to keep the information simple. The book will hold 20 addresses.

Another view of the front and top of the book.


1. Use coordinating patterned paper to cut out the snail in the Birthday Bash Cartridge. Cut the items (snail, layers 1 and layers 2) to size 2.5″.

2. I then ran each piece through a xyron and pieced them together.

3. I then placed the completed snail on the front of a 6″ by 6″ board book.

4. I added chipboard letters.

5. I then ran 0.125″ ribbon through the spine. I tied a knot as close to the book as possible. I then tied ribbons along the 0.125″ ribbon (that I ran through the spine). Once you have added all of your ribbons, I used Fabric Tac to adhere it to the spine.

6. I stapled a piece of ribbon to the side of page 1 in the book.

7. I printed on white cardstock the information I wanted to put in the book. I then cut them down to 5.625″ by 5.625″ and adhered them to the center of each page.

8. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 5.625″ by 5.625″ and adhere to the back of the book.

I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did… have a great Thursday!
