Advice Booklet

Advice Booklet

At a baby shower I passed the book around and had her friends and family give the mother to be advice. The advice ranged from old wives tales to sentimental words from her grandmother. She loved the book. This can be a simple little book or depending on how crafty you are more elaborate you choose.

What you need

81/2×11 card stock
clip art
Paper punch


Choose your theme. Cut the card stock in half.

The number of pieces of card stock depends on how big you want the book to be. I like to use white card stock for the pages. This way everyone can read it.

Decorate the front and the back covers using clip art, or what ever you choose.

When you get all of the pages finished use the hole punch to punch holes in the card stock. You can tie the book together with ribbon or some print shops offer book binding that is very inexpensive. What ever you choose.

I made one of these books for my daughter when she was expecting her first child. The front cover was entitled Advice for the New Mommy.
