"Birthday Book" Project

Hello friends! I am happy to be here again sharing another fun project. This is a "Birthday Book" where you can keep all those birthday dates in a handy and pretty way.

"From My Kitchen" Cricut Cartridge
1" & 1-3/4" Circle Punches
2" Scallop punch
Transparency sheet
Six 12" x 12" double-sided cardstocks for the pages
Black and white cardstock for letters and punches
Black Ink
12 - 4" x 6" Ruled Index Cards
Embellishments for cover
Binding comb

  • Cut 12 tab cards (4 of each tab location) from the printed cardstock using the "From My Kitchen" cartridge (pages 48, 49 & 50) at the 4-1/4" setting.  I was able to get two tab cards from each 12 x 12 sheet.
  • Cut two rectangles out of the transparency to match the size of tab cards for the front and back covers
  • Embellish the front cover according to taste
  • Punch out 12 scallops and 12 of each size of circles for the tabs
  • Cut out 1" letters for the book title and each page. I used the letters from the "From My Kitchen" cartridge
  • Add index cards, months and scallops & circles to tab pages
  • Stamp according to each month

Finally, bind all of the pages and the covers together.  I used a binding comb machine that I had from a "previous" life (that machine is about a century old!!!).  This little book makes a fabulous and useful Christmas gift! Hope you enjoyed it and it will inspire you to make a bunch! Have a great and blessed day!
