To Make Basic Baby Book For Boys
To make the basic baby book for boys, you will need:
-A three-ring binder with at least four dividers
-Paper (white and blue)
-Glue stick or tape
-Photos or pictures of your child
optional: stickers, markers, crayons, etc. to decorate your pages
Step One: Cut a piece of white paper to fit inside the front cover of your binder. Glue or tape it in place. This will be your title page. You can decorate it however you like.
Step Two: Cut a piece of blue paper to fit the back cover of your binder. Glue or tape it in place. This will be your end page. You can decorate it however you like.
Step Three: Using the hole punch, make holes along the left side of your title page and all the way down the right side of your end page.
Step Four: Put your dividers into your binder, making sure that there is one between each section.
Step Five: On the first divider, write “Front Cover.” On the second divider, write “Title Page.” On the third divider, write “Pictures.” On the fourth divider, write “Clippings.”
Step Six: Glue or tape your title page to the front cover of your binder.
Step Seven: Put your milestone pictures into the “Pictures” pages of your book. You can either put them in chronological order or by theme.
Here are some ideas for milestones:
-The first tooth comes in
-Rolls over for the first time
-Crawls for the first time
-Takes his or her first steps (or just starts trying to walk)
You can also write down other things that happened during your baby boy’s life. For example, if you were living in a different place when he was born, you could include that information in the book as well. You might want to add photos of important events such as holidays or trips too.
When deciding what kind of pictures to use, keep them simple and fun so they don’t distract from the text on each page. Also, consider using images with minimal color since this will help make it look more like an old-fashioned scrapbook instead of a modern digital one.
Step Eight: Cut out any articles, photos, etc. that you want to include in the “Clippings” section of your baby book and glue or tape them in place. You can also add stickers, markers, crayons, etc. to decorate your pages however you like.
Congratulations! You have now created a basic baby book for boys!
How Do You Make A Baby Soft Book?
You will need:
-A piece of fabric measuring about 18×18 inches
-Embroidery floss in a coordinating color
Fold the fabric in half so that it measures 18×36 inches. Cut along the fold to create two pieces of fabric, each measuring 18×18 inches. Place one piece of fabric face down on your work surface.
Thread the needle with embroidery floss and knot one end. Stitch around the entire edge of the fabric, using a blanket stitch. This will create a hemmed edge. Leave a small opening at one corner for stuffing later on.
Turn the book right side out and fill it with stuffing until it is nice and plump. Sew the opening closed. Tie a knot in the embroidery floss and cut off any excess.
Repeat the steps for the second piece of fabric, but do not fill it with stuffing. Instead, sew a button onto one corner. This will be used to close the book later on.
Now you can give your baby a soft book as a gift or keep it for your own little one. They will love exploring all the different textures inside. The best part is that they can chew on it without fear of being hurt since there are no hard edges or corners.
How Do You Make A Fabric Baby Album?
– Cut a piece of fabric that is 24″x36″. This will be the front and back cover of your album.
– Cut two pieces of fabric that are 12″x18″. These will be the inside pages of your album.
– Sew the two pieces of 12″x18″ fabric together, making sure to leave a hole in the center for you to insert your photos later on.
– Sew all three pieces of fabric together, making sure to leave a hole in the center for you to insert your photos later on.
– Turn your newly created fabric baby album right side out.
– Insert photos into the album pages. You can either use photo corners or photo tabs to hold them in place.
– Close the album and tie a ribbon around it to keep it closed. There you have it. Your very own fabric baby album.
How Do You Make A Baby Crinkle Book?
Crinkle books for babies are wonderful, but they can get a little pricey to buy. You can make your own with just a few simple supplies and the instructions below. This is a great project to keep in mind when you have extra scrap fabric or ribbon.
Scrap fabrics of colors that compliment/coordinate well with each other
Coordinating ribbons (optional)
Paper and pen for drawing templates
Cardboard scraps big enough to fit each template once cut out
Needle & thread or sewing machine
Safety pin (if needed)
Step One: Draw basic templates on paper first before cutting out cardboard. You will need two large circles (the front and back covers of your book), one medium-sized circle for the center/spine, and a bunch of small squares or rectangles to create the pages.
Step Two: Cut out each template from cardboard using sharp scissors. If you’re using plastic wrap, skip this step.
Step Three: Decide on a fabric design for each page. For example, if you want to have a pink polka dot crinkle book, then cut out several squares in various shades of pink with dotted patterns.
Step Four: Sew each piece of fabric onto its designated cardboard square using a needle & thread or sewing machine (if you’re using plastic wrap, safety pin the fabric to the cardboard instead). Make sure each piece of fabric is securely attached.
Step Five: Once all the pages are sewn on, it’s time to create the spine and covers. Cut a long strip of fabric for the spine (about ½ inch wide), fold it in half, and sew along the edge. Do the same for both front and back cover pieces of cardboard, making sure that the crinkly plastic wrap (if using) is facing outwards.
Step Six: Attach each cover to its corresponding spine by folding over and sewing along the edge. You’re done. Give your new crinkle book a good shake to get those crinkles going.
