Reflections of an aunt

Supplies: Patterned paper: Basic Grey, Chipboard letters: Heidi Swapp (black) & K & Co (large R), Stickers: Toga (Black) & Adorn It, Others: Ribbon, felt, twill, black pen, clear button, thread, recycled folder.

I love being an aunt. My nephews come over once a week and we have a glorious time together. Kids are really easy to entertain and they basically like to do the same thing over and over again. They are easily excited by the free toys that come with a meal or cereal box and would find fun in anything as long as you engage in the activity with them. I always learn something new from them through our interactions. :)

I made this from an old folder which I covered with Basic Grey paper (the boys love dinosaurs!) and used felt for the spine (paper tends to crumple). Added some ribbon scraps & managed to spell the word "reflections" by mixing chipboard letters. If you look closely, you can tell that I ran out of the letter "e" and improvised somehow (with "c"). The letters were outlined with a white pen and then topped with glossy accents.

This post was inspired by the prompt at One Little Word. Pin It
