Since there are 10 Grandchildren, I simply titled the Brag Book "10." I made a collage of pictures for each page for each family. Then embellished and went crazy with baker's twine, chipboard cut outs, stickers/decals, stamps, and of course - BUTTONS! I also added a few non-page elements that don't include pictures but added interest instead. I used plain chipboard for the front and back cover and covered it with paper, and bound it with my Cinch, and then a green ribbon built into the front and back cover to tie it closed.
So here is my project... Starting from the cover! All of the pictures I took with my phone, so I hope they look alright...
|Chipboard "10" and a metal tag that says "together"|
|My oldest brother and his wife's daughter. She is such a fun, energetic little girl!|
|My brother and sister in law's 3 boys. Monogram stickers with their initials and a giant button! These boys are roguh and tough and give good hugs!|
|A tag slide out... and the little envelope is made from a paper towel roll cut down to size, embellished with some baker's twine and a star button.|
|My brother and his wife's two beautiful daughters. They are such great sisters to each other. I quilled the flower and leaves, then added some "bling" to the center of the flower.|
|The youngest brother and his wife's family. Silver monograms with their initials, washi-tape, and baker's twine. Such wonderful personalities in these three! And lots of energy!|
|A sewn layered tag and I just wrote that little message on there - it's true!|
|Family pictures of the three boys together... LOVE this picture - it is so colorful and fun! Embellished with a chipboard cut out and some washi tape.|
|Leaves bound in the book (not real of course)... just added some interest and accented the picture of the boys in the leaves on the opposite page.|
|Chipboard letters, pop-dotted and colorful with a couple doodles.|
|Another family picture of siblings. Is this not the sweetest picture ever?|
|The sisters again.... they have turned into beautiful young women. Embellished with some thickers.|
|A tag at the end for Mamaw, on the back are all of the grandchildren's names!|
