A couple of days ago I shared what we made for Ty's teacher with you...

Here's what the other kids helped make for their teachers...




We started by taking some graphics we found at The Graphics Fairy, a file folder (with an awesome black houndstooth pattern - I think I bought these in a pack at Target), and some Mod Podge.


I printed out the graphics onto cardstock, cut them to size & then Mod Podged them to the file folder. 


After the Mod Podge was dry, I cut out the graphics with a small border of houndstooth...these then became the front & back covers of our albums.

We cut some loose leaf  and some graphing paper that we had lying around in half and added it in between the covers. Then I took some book-binding tape I had, wrapped it around what would be the spine of the album & stapled through the tape and all of the pages for reinforcement. 



After that, we just picked some embellishments...deco tape, stickers, gems, etc. and added them to the albums...easy peasy.




Finally, we found some little sheets of school-themed paper...cut them down, stapled a ribbon to the top and slid them into the albums to be used as bookmarks.



I think these little books took all of about 10 minutes each to make (minus the drying time...I let them sit overnight)...but I really like the way they turned out...and I think the kids' teachers will, too...

These would also be perfect to use as a way to save memories & photos from your child's school year...
