Happy Grandparents Day!

Happy Grandparents Day!
There is a quote that says, "A simplest toy is one which even the youngest child can's called a grandparent".  How sweet.  I still remember those special moments when my grandparents were living.  I'm honoring my mother today, GrandMa Minnie,  by giving her this brag book for her six week old grandson PJ.  That's his nickname!  The mini looks like a bunch of envelopes.  This is the cover.
Authenique Curiosity Collection paper
DCWV chalk board paper
Pink Paislee chip board letters
Martha Stewart punch
 All you need is five double sided 12x12 sheets.  You can use more if you chose to.
 Fold it diagonal.
 Use your bone folder and make sure the fold is straight.
 On the opposite sides fold them down 5 1/2 inches on both side. Use your bone folder again to make sure the fold is straight and easy to fold.
 This is how it will look when folded over.
 These are the embellished inserts to be placed inside the 'V' part of the page.  She can open them to place three photos inside.  I made tabs to make it easy to pull out of the mini.  In front of the inserts she can place tags, journaling or what ever she choses.  The inserts are 4.5 x 5.25.
 On the outside flap I added a few handcut hearts and some 3D stickers.
 I made the bottle and the diaper is a die cut from Archivers.  I added a real safety pin. 
 This is the back cover.  I altered a binder clip so that would help to keep it secure.
Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.  I got so involved in it I forgot to take a photo of some extra steps.  Come back and let me  know if you try it!
