I made this memory book for my daughter's surprise birthday brunch at work. We wanted every guest to sign and comment to her. I made it using her favorite colors.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • DCWV LeCreme Card Stock
  • Adhesive
  • Ribbon
  • Pearls
  • Gem Flourishes
  • Cricut Craft Room

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cover front & back of mini album with flocked Le Creme paper.
Using Cricut Craft Room and Mother's Day Bouquet, cut varying sizes of flowers. Glue flowers together, curl petals down & up to add depth. Add pearls for centers.
Leaves should be cut with flowers. Adhere flowers to the front of book, arrange leaves around them. Add red jewels and jewel flourishes. Add decorative butterflies as accents.
For a finishing touch, I wove red ribbon through the binding of the book, tied bows on each end and adhered the bows to the book.
On the inside of the book, I cut out different flower motifs, some from paper, some from felt lace, etc. to decorate the pages. The theme was to give Donna 50 of something. I started out to give her 50 flowers in this book but it turned out to be closer to 100.
