What you will need:
thicker card stock of cereal box front and back
odds and ends from your stash
hot glue gun /or needle and thread
buttons or beads if you want
Velcro (I used whatever I had on the throw out clothes)
helpers if you have them around
|gluing the material onto the cereal box for the cover|
of the boy one
|I am using zip ties right now for the binding.|
I cut off the extra at the end and put a dab of hot glue on that
to keep it from scratching anyone. but you could use whatever you
want or even glue or sew them in by hand.
|The outside of the girl one. I used an old t-shirt that we|
didn't ever wear and a mini from another outfit.
|Zoi helping me with the details.|
|This is the inside of Loty's book. Zach drew the David for me|
and Zoi came up with the idea for what to put on the page.
|Here are the smooth stones for Loty to button on to|
the buttons. What I did was cut around the button wholes
that I had on an old boys church shirt and Zach colored them with
a brown marker.
|This is the inside of Nora's book. sorry the pictures|
did something weird. Zoi drew the girl. We wanted the
girl to have decent underclothes so we drew them to her knees like the old days.
She even has a crown if you can see it.
|a little closer|
|This little pouch is on the back of the page for holding her|
|Here are some of her things. I used some upholstery fabric for two|
of the dresses. Then I used an old chip bag for the crown,
shoes and necklace. She even has a sash.
|The outside of Loty's book (front).|
velcro shapes and colors
a barn with animals in it
pond with ducks
peas in a pod
