To make a little book, choose 3 different pieces of paper. The beauty about making these "sticker books" is that it doesn't matter what paper you use as it doesn't need to be plain for drawing and writing. You could even use old magazines or newspaper! I chose some vintage wall paper, an old page from a falling apart children's book and a scrapbooking sheet.
Cut your 3 pieces of paper to rectangle size. Your book will be that size folded in half, so choose whatever size you want!
Place your 3 sheets together and fold down the middle, making a little book shape. Choose your prettiest paper to be the top layer for a nice front cover. It should look a bit like this.
Then tie a pretty piece of string or ribbon around the pages to hold it together. This is instead of glue, staples, or sewing, which makes it really easy and I think it looks super cute! Tie the string nice and tight!
If you feel so inclined, you can decorate the front cover. Popping a child's name on the front always makes it special if its a gift. One of these little books with a packet of stickers would make a good little present for a 2 or 3 year old! (Let's face it, kids love stickers even if we wish they didn't!) These little books were given to some special twin girls who turned 2 over the weekend.
The gorgeous wallpaper I used was given to me by the lovely Vintage Sheet Addict (But more about all the lovely parcels I've been receiving in a separate post!)
