Baby Brag Book!!

 This is a baby brag book that I made a couple of years ago for my cousin and his wife. I always meant to post it, but never got around to it. I used Bo Bunny's 6x6 Bare Naked Binder and My Mind's Eye Paper and embellishments. At the same time as this, I also made 6 other versions of these for various people. {Something had to have been in the water, as they were all due within a month of each other, and not all of them knew each other either.}
 I think that the pictures may be pretty self explanatory, but if you have any questions at all, please let me know. I used a super strong adhesive to glue the paper to the chipboard very near to the edges. I also did all of my stapling of the ribbon to the pages before I glued them down, as getting them pulled back up is extremely hard to do without ripping the paper. {Learned that from experience!} Once all the pages were glued down, I sanded around all of the edges. I thought that gave it a better look.

 I also wrapped ribbon around where the canvas and paper met to give it a cleaner look.

I will post a couple of other ones through out the next week or two to give you a couple different views on how I made them different for each person.
Hope you enjoyed this project, and please let me know if you have any questions!!
