I am so excited about this post! I have been working on 2 quiet books, one for my daughter and one for my nephew, for about 2 weeks now. They are time consuming, but SO worth it! I love how they turned out, and can’t wait to see what you guys make too.
I found the design, templates, and supplies list at Serving Pink Lemonade. She’s got it all organized, and makes it easy for you to make one too. I did make a few changes to some of her templates, and I’ll show you below what I added…..
Ok, I didn't actually change this one, but it is by far my favorite! The petals have velcro so kids can move them around and learn counting. Then, the little pot that it's in is actually a pocket to hold the petals. So cute, right!
"Serving Pink Lemonade's" design is actually a cute ballet slipper. I had originally planned on doing the ballet slipper for Linnaea's book, and a tennis shoe for my nephew's book. I decided I actually liked the tennis shoe a bit more than the slipper, so I did this for both books 🙂
The only thing I added to this one was a little personalization-- just put their initials on the mailboxes, which I thought was fun!
"Serving Pink Lemonade's" first page simply says "My Quiet Book", once again I wanted to add a little personalization so I did it this way. I also added the little pocket.
I had a great time creating this fun little books, and I hope you guys do too!!
