"You Are Loved" Children's Scrapbook
Package of heart shaped cardboard
A binder ring
I picked up most of my supplies at Michaels Craft Store and also had some on hand already from previous projects.
The first step was to trace the hearts and cut out the scrapbook paper. Next we mod podged the paper onto each side of the hearts. After the paper was set I cut out the pictures of E's loved ones to size. Loved ones include his parents, grandparents, cousins and godparents. I have so many more hearts to make in the future to include his aunts, uncles, friends and day care provider too! The pictures were mod podged onto the hearts and then I let E loose with his stickers. Well, kind of. He would have preferred to put a sticker on top of each persons face, but we came to an agreement that on each of their shirts would suffice. I was really proud of him for picking the stickers out for each page. He surprised me by picking stickers of tractors for his farmer Grandpa which was really cute.
Once he was happy with all of his sticker selections I trimmed the edges of the hearts to cut off any excess scrapbook paper. Next I one-hole punch the top of each heart and attached the binder ring.
