A Homemade Baby Book

Updated on February 18, 2018

Homemade Baby Book

How to create your Own baby book..

We can buy lots of beautiful baby book in malls, bookstores, and baby companies. But if you're creative enough and artistic in some ways you can create your own baby book made up of some recycled materials that are just needed to be thrown away.

Yes, I knew that all moms want their babies scrapbooks and baby books to be extra special. So when they grow old they can look back to those memories that their moms have kept for so many years. Others probably would say, 'oh it's a time consuming' or 'why should I make one when I can buy a good one?'. Indeed! But I am giving you three good enough reasons why you would want to create one afterall.

First. It is environmental friendly. Instead of throwing the empty boxes and paper bags to garbage bins, why don't you try to recycle and reuse it. You can make one beautiufl baby book out of those materials. That case, you can be able to declutter and keep your house out of mess even just a little.

"What?? How come when you are actually telling us to cut some cardboards. Is that what you call decluttering?"

Okay, I'm sorry but that would take you only half an hour or less if you want. You only have to act right away and keep all the materials needed for your project on a place well organized and always remember to keep out of reach of your children. Then discard those that aren't needed anymore.

Second. It is less expensive. Yes, less expensive but it can be more beautiful and presentable if you desire it too. If you'll only notice those cheaper products which you can buy from the outside, not all were really carefully crafted. Plus it gives you an additional cost to buy every thing that you want to attach on your baby book like the embellishments and scrapbook stickers and many others. You can buy those highly crafted baby scrapbooks, why not? But do you think it is practical on your budget?

Third. It helps boost your artistic talent. When you go out just to find babybook or baby scrapbook for your child, you'll find out that nothing suits your taste best. Then you'll end up buying too many items that would cost you much. Never mind, cause that would make your child's most wonderful and priceless possession, in time. But, is it practical?

Okay, if you think I did not convince you, then I will now let you judge my homemade baby book. Feel free to criticize. But I'm proud to tell you this isn't my first homemade baby book. If you think I deserve a fair judgement, then you'll have to visit my next hub on how to create a homemade baby book 2 (soon).

How To Do It?

  • Cut an empty carton or cardboard. Measure a size about 7 inches x 9 inches

  • Use a glue or double adhesive tape to attach corners.
  • Cut a card stock to cover both sides of the cardboard.
  • Do the same thing with the front cover and back cover.
  • Make 5 covered pages with same sizes.(Its optional cause you can make more pages if you want only remember to choose the right size of a circular ring binder).
  • Measure the bottom cover about 7 inches x 11 1/2 inches or;
  • At least measure the bottom cover 3- 3 1/2 inches longer than than first five pages
  • Puch three holes at the left side.

      Agapsikap, your environment- friendly baby book looks great and your instructions are well-presented and clear. It's also a great idea to use material you may reuse and recycle. Thank you for sharing this and also for linking to my hub. Though there are many articles and ideas about scrapbooking it will aways remain an interesting topic for parents and those who are interested in crafts. I'm looking forward to read your other hubs related to this topic. Voted up, useful, interesting, beautiful and shared.
