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.

Instructions:

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!

Thanks,

Addison Paige
