making it fun

Quite a few readers have asked me about the Bind-it-All by Zutter. I highly recommend this little tool. It is in the Top 3 of my go-to crafting items! I used my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby, which made a huge difference. And I would recommend purchasing the pink version, it's the newest model. Not that the blue is a bad choice, if you get it for a bargain, the pink just has the ability to punch closer to the edge, I believe.

I'll show you three cute little books I've made for my two youngest, Isabella and Victoria. I was lucky to have some rub-ons from Foof-a-La {Hall Pass collection} to use throughout this project. The red foam letters are from the Dollar Tree and the sticker letters are Making Memories, I think. I don't usually keep product packaging so set me straight if I'm wrong.

Another one cover version...didn't have enough of any one color letter sticker {also from Dollar Tree}, so I mixed it up. I also used the Foof-a-La rub-ons again.


Do you sense a Superstar theme going on here? The star embellishment seen below is one of those glow-in-the-dark stars that didn't stick to our ceiling.


Have any SuperStars in your life that would appreciate a little fun in their learning? These would make great birthday gifts, party favors or the ever popular quiet books. How about picking up a pack of flash cards at the Target Dollar Spot and making these for your Kindergartener's class as holiday gifts? You could even let the kids decorate the covers themselves and then you bind them. I think any kid would get a kick out of that.

No Bind-it-All in your future? No worries. Binder rings, ball chain or even ribbon would be just as cute, effective and adorable!
