Onesie Baby Boy Brag Book / Scrapbook Album
















A very good friend of mine is about to become a grandma for the first time. Her daughter's baby shower was this week and I wanted to make her a brag book, but something different, something I had never tried before. I love baby onesies. It was one of my favorite things to buy for my girls when they were babies and so that is how I came up with the idea for this album. Here are the details:
  • Album is approx 8" tall
  • 10 pages total, front and back including front and back cover
  • Monkey in front pock pulls out
  • Eight 3.5X4.5 photo mats
  • 20 eyelets
  • Two 2" rings holding the album together (embellished with coordinating ribbons)
  • Every single page is sewn! Onesies are sewn with straight stitch and mats with a zig zag stitch.
  • Embellishments can be used for mini journaling
  • Brads
  • Buttons
  • Ribbons
  • 2 Charms

Already these are a big hit with family and friends! I have orders for 3 and have 2 more cut to put up for auction on Ebay and Etsy. I will list those when they are being posted to those sights. Want a custom one made? Contact me today!

Are these chipboard or cardstock pages?

Hi Denise,

This particular one was made with cardstock, {I added an additional piece of cardstock between the pages to add extra strength). The 11 I have made since this one all have a chipboard core. It was after making this one that I got my deep housing blade for my Cricut, so cutting chipboard is no longer a problem! °Ü°
