A Banner Book...

A tradition that we have at our house is that every morning on the first day of school I take the kids pictures with their new clothes and fresh new backpack in our front yard. This is of my oldest son, Aaron, for grades 4-7. You can add more years easily with the binder rings. {scroll down to the bottom for products used information}
{I still need to journal on it, I was thinking of using the backside as the journal about his teachers, classes, friends and etc}

  5. That is super cute. What a great idea!

  6. Oh my goodness, Jenn, this is adorable! I absolutely love mini albums, and I'm pretty sure I have a similar fabric pennant set from another company. I've been trying to decide if I could indeed use it as a mini album or if I needed to use it as a craft project. I think you have me convinced to use it as a mini album! (And you used the Fabri-Tac to attach the paper to the fabric?)

  7. This is gorgeous and so cleverly put together! Awesome job!
