Birthday Book

One of my favorite things that we did for my son's birthday was making him a little birthday book.

In my family growing up, we had a tradition that as we would give our gifts to the birthday girl/boy, we would tell that person why we loved them.  I wanted my 1-year-old to know why the people in his life loved him, even as a baby.  So instead of just telling him, I asked each person at the party to write down why they loved him.  

The book was a cinch to make.  I used another one of the chipboard star books I found at Michael's and mod-podged some red, yellow, and blue paper onto the stars and distressed the edges. After the party, I typed up what everyone had written.  Now this will be a little keepsake for him...
I may do this every year for my kids to flip through and feel loved.
