Vacation Memory Books

vacbooks1
Before our vacation to the beach last week, I whipped up these little blank books for the kids.
Every year on our trip to the beach, they like to record the trip in a book.
I ran out of Bare Books so this is how I improvised.

I took 5 pieces of white cardstock and one piece of colored cardstock and folded them in half. 
I find using a pencil helps create a nice crisp crease.
Then lay the white sheets on top of colored sheet and sew down the middle of the crease.

I used stickers from my stash to decorate the front.
And a bit of washi tape and labels that came with a set of canning jars.

I love looking at them at the end of the trip.
Maressa drew picture of her sand angel, some castles and waves.
Zachary filled up his whole book with diary style entries and lots of pictures.
One day I’m sure they will enjoy looking back and remembering.

Okay, why didn't I think of this?! I purchased journals for our safari trip but these would have been way cuter. And friendlier on the wallet ;)
