Baby Boy Book

My uncle Gary asked me to make a journal for a co-worker of his...a gal that's expecting her first baby around the same time as me, in fact! I was excited to try an idea I'd had brewing for a while: a paper-wrapped cover with a bookbinding paper spine. Here is the result:

The cover paper was specifically "baby boy" themed, while the spine was covered in flocked (fuzzy) brown paper. I also added a white satin ribbon to be used as a bookmark.

The inside paste pages were a blue and white polka dot pattern that coordinated with the cover paper.

Congratulations Mindy, on your soon-to-be-here son! May this journal bless both of you as you record the memories and milestones of your pregnancy and his first chapter in life!
