I was browsing on Pinterest the other day and saw where someone had made a Brag Book using a clear vinyl checkbook cover. I knew I had one of those floating around the house somewhere, so I went on a search and finally found it! I decided to try my hand at making one. Well, one thing I've learned from making this one: always, and I mean always, measure the openings in the checkbook BEFORE cutting and assembling the pages!! Mine didn't quite fit so I had to alter it a bit to get it into the checkbook. Still came out cute, I think, even if the inside pages are a tad bit too big. Check it out:
You can see the inside pages hanging out a little. That I will remedy on the next one I make!
Here is what it looks like when it's opened:
This is just a proto-type using up odd pieces of designer paper that I had. I've ordered some better quality checkbook covers and they should arrive next week. Once I get those, I will attempt to make one the proper way and I will try to post a picture tutorial of how to make these. I want to make a baby brag book for a teacher at my school who just had a little boy. These are perfect to keep in your purse and pull out to brag!
Hope to see you again soon!
