Nature Board Book

Happy Thursday!  I was up this week at
DOODLEBUG DESIGNS
with this "Thankful For Nature" Board Book that I created with 
"Happy Camper" and "Friendly Forrest" Collections.

Both of the collections are filled with the cutest critters, so I wanted to showcase
 them in the form of a board book!  I started with a couple of 4.5"X5.5" dies by
Top Dog Dies and sheets of heavyweight chipboard.  

I used some assorted alphabet stickers for the cover.


I cut the base pages from 12X12 papers and the oval inset was cut from 6X6 papers...
I love the mix of larger prints with the smaller ones!  


I'ved added some of the new glittered enamel dots, but if you're making the 
book for a smaller child, you may want to try hand-tied buttons or brads instead.


The new "Chippers" chipboard alphas are perfect for spelling out smaller words!


Doodle Pops and stickers layered on with foam adhesive add interest, 
as well as dimension!

Again, if you're making a similar board book for a small child, 
you may also consider laminating the pages and forgoing the dimensional 
embellishments.  Choose critters that are indigenous to your area and go on 
a nature hike scavenger hunt in search of them :)
