I mainly used cardstock for this album. I did add in a little patterned paper for accent. I also used random rubons and stickers that I had lying around. I punched a small hole in the edge of the covers to thread the ribbon through.
I printed the entire poem out on cardstock and then cut it apart for each page. Check out that vintage teal button...so cute!
I liked the look of adding a photo on one side of each page. I wanted the photos to stand out and be the focal point.
A little circle punched patterned paper gives this page a fun look
I love the softness of the white rubon overlapping the wording. These were a flourish pack from American Crafts.
I always like to leave a little signature on a handmade gift so that the recipient remembers where it came from and knows they are special to me.
I love the sweet message of this poem. It is a good reminder for all of us. Here is the entire poem again (I have definitely changed out the wording to Prince to make it work for little boys too)
I am a child of royal birth.
My Father is King of Heaven and Earth.
My spirit was born on the courts of high.
A daughter beloved, A Princess am I!
