The only thing I'm not so stoked about is the way the book is held shut, but at the time I didn't really have another option  Sad.  The book was falling apart so I didn't mind repurposing it, but unfortunately it came with that tape on the spine. There are also a few photos of the cards I made for her to send out as thank you notes.  Any critiques are welcome, thanks for looking!

Here's the link to the flickr account, because I didn't want to upload too many pictures...

This is way cute and totally gives me an idea for when my daughter gets older.  Taking her favorite book and making it a memory book!

What a novel way to make postcards.  I think I need to check thrift stores for old children's books. I've done postcards out of cute graphics on boxes before and out of old calendars. You've given me another idea.
