At the end of his business, one of my granddaughters and I will join him for a week trip.
We will get to celebrate her 16th birthday there. We plan on going from London on the fast train to Paris, then drive south, visit the French coast and drive to Pisa and Venice!
I only wish I was taking all of the grands... The other 4 live in Texas and are so busy it would be hard to get the time but someday we WILL make it work.
For the trip I decided to make a brown paper book for Lu lu as she likes to calls herself.
|I used very strong magnetics on the inside of the front flap and also inside the ribbon I glued in to close the book|
|Most pictures are just printed off google images. I used scrapebook paper to make most of the pockets.|
Love the blues in the flags against the brown wrapping paper.
|on the inside of the first page I made a pocket by using some cushioned tape around the three edges the brown ribbon makes the edge of the pocket a bit sturdier to resist tears. The top of the map is glued to the page. |
The tag says ticket stubs.
|I put in several pockets with writting paper that she can journal on.|
|some pages are blank so she can write or add a postcard or photo.|
|These circles have lines she can jot down a few things o n. Everywhere you see ribbon is the top of a pocket.|
Hope you enjoyed this little project.
