Hello everyone and welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing a tutorial on how to make a Personalized ABC Book using the Word Punch Board and the waterfall sleeves.
My little toddler started school this year and he has been learning letters and how to write his own name so I thought it would be fun to create an ABC book with some photos of some of his favorite things!
I started by using my Trim and Score Board to cut 4×6 letters and 28 3,5 inch square pictures, one for each letter.
Next, I used my Word punch Board to create all the words for the mini book. Because I wanted the letter to be closer together I punched the odd letters first placing the punches on the 1,13,25 and 37 marks. Then I changed to the even letters and placed my punches on the 7, 19, 31 and 43 marks.
On each page I included the letter, a picture and a punched word.
I placed each page on the 4×6 inch Waterfall Sleeves, they are plastic so my son can practice the letters on top and then clean everything with a tissue. He couldn’t wait to try the book!
I made some cardboard covers and bound everything with my Cinch.
To decorate the mini book I used my Tassel Loom to create coordinating tassels. They were very easy to make! The Tassel Loom makes 3 different tassel sizes and it is foldable so you can easily store it and take it to crops.
Once you remove your tassel you will need to trim it. Simply wrap your tassel on paper and cut the border!
Aren’t those tassels cute? They are perfect to decorate mini books!
The cover is super simple because I know my son is going to use this book all the time! A few thickers and that’s it! The lovely cover paper is from My Bright Life collection by Pebbles Inc.
My son is really excited about his book and I love that he can practice letters in a fun and cute way! Have you ever made an ABC book? I think it is the perfect gift for a small children!
Have a great week!
