Happy word book

It is Ava's 1st birthday next week, instead of a birthday card I have made a HAPPY birthday book.

I started off with a blank grey board word book from Bo Bunny

First I covered each letter front and back with DCWV papers from Nana's nursery stack for girls, inked the edges in pink chalk.

Doodled around the edges of each word on the back and front with a black fine liner added a few embellies and ribbons.

On the 'H' one birthday candle, crown, flower and Ava in silver glitter letters.

For the 'A' I stuck a Bo Bunny sticker on a piece of card to strengthen cut out close to the edge and mounted on some green contrast card and cut leaving a border mounted on 3mm foam pads decorated with a few punched flowers added 3 little organza ribbons and threaded some Bo Bunny spotted ribbon through a button slider.

'P' is for princess...

and the next 'P' a picture of Ava in her Halloween costume a black swirl with one of my favourite Viva pearl pens. Ava loves looking at books and our photo albums she always laughs when looking at pictures of herself.

and 'Y' completes my 'HAPPY' birthday book

Now to make a gift box for my book and a birthday cake...

Thanks for looking, keep safe and warm.
