Bo Bunny book for a dad

Here's a sample I just finished up for a Father's Day display at Memory Bound. I enjoyed playing with these fun Bo Bunny products, including the chipboard book, paper, ribbon, and clips.




Anytime I create something, I try to make it as practical as possible, so with that in mind, I added mats for nine photos in this little album. One way I accomplished that was to cut and include an additional piece of chipboard that was in the package (I think it was packing!). It provided space for several more small photos. It would be easy to add even more pages.

This little album would make a great Father's Day gift!

Great idea, Janet. Very nice. Does it come with instructions on how to make it?

Janet said...

Thanks, Sharon. There are no instructions included with the album. Bo Bunny makes some kits, but this isn't a kit. You can purchase the "DAD" book and use whatever color scheme/theme you would like.

The most time-consuming part of the project is covering each side of the letters with whatever paper or cardstock you choose. Use sandpaper to smooth the edges. Once that's done, then you can add photos and embellishments as you wish. Sky's the limit on what you could do with this little project! :-)

Very Cute! I'm jealous that you get to play with all those products to make things.

Gorgeous album! Love the patterned paper mix and those inked edges. Great idea to re-use part of the packaging to add to it. :)

Gorgeous paper! Great idea for a kit, especially with so much of it pre-cut :)
