My Niece's Gift

A few months back I made a little chipboard album for my nephew's birthday. Well, this weekend is my niece's party, so I decided to make a little chipboard album for her too. I used my Cricut to cut out the chipboard pieces. I cut them into the shape of a ballerina tutu...since she is a dancer.

Here is the front side and cover.

Here is the back side

I used various papers for this. There is PP from the Target $1 Spot, as well as from DCWV stack (Nana's Kids), and some pieces of Disney papers I purchased as single sheets. I cut her name out of pink CS, and attached to the cover. I added a flower, and some gems using my i-Rock.

There are a couple pages that are just colored CS, and I added some ballerina stickers to them. The book is very plain, but I thought it would be fun for her to add her own touch to it. I hope she likes it! I have really enjoyed making mini chipboard albums as gifts lately. I think they are a fun way for kids to explore paper crafting as well.
