Library Pocket Card Skinny Books


Are these not Zutterly fantastic? Linda completely indulged me by generously binding a bunch of my library pocket cards as 2 skinny books. Linda even went through the trouble of finding the best titles for the covers- the skinny book standing up has the title, "Of Colors and Things" and the one lying down has the title, "Rebecca's Nap" (amazing, since I just stuffed a bunch of cards into an envelope for her, not looking at titles!) Inside, each book title is a sort of prompt. I can't wait to start playing in my skinny books! You can be sure that I will be posting the results!

what a great idea!! Linda is a great friend to have indeed :) I'm a huge fan of mini books and an simply love that idea - it could be used as journal to highlight your fav books that you read to rebecca?? it would be a fun keepsake for her - to look back at all the books you read with her when she was a baby/toddler/young girl..... xoxo anna

OK, I'm here and so glad. This skinny book concept of bound cards is excellent. There are book titles on them? How marvelous! My cards were blank. So how many do you have and are any up for grabs? I'll trade you something ... Jeanne

Evidently there are "others" that like the library, too. I think I'm going to do a little book about my favorite library as a child. Ohhh...I'm so excited. Like I NEED another project!

Oh swoon!!! you zutterly lucky gal, must have a word with Linda about out-sourcing, might be a bit of a gap in the market tee hee... and to think she had that thing in it's box gathering dust, it just goes to show what you can do with a bit of inspiration! What a treasure to have one with Rebecca's name on it, very cool! I second Anna on the keepsake idea, fab!
