Boy in the Zoo Baby Shower Album

 Today I wanted to share with you this last minute custom request I did a few days ago for a baby shower today.  I have to admit this book was a pleasant challenge for me. This is a tag album, with 20 tags and room for photos and additional notes.

I binded it using natural hemp cord. This was the first time I've created a tag book that wasn't wire bound, so I tripled the spacers in the spine to accomadate the extra layers at the end of the book.

Each tag is numbered from 1 - 18. Guest will pick a tag and write advice according to the number on the tag they choose. For example, if I get the number 3 then I'll write advice for a 3 month old baby. These tags slide into the flaps and fit into the punched notches I created. There is one tag on each side of the flap.

Since this was a last minute custom order I didn't have time to wait for the special order die cuts to arrive to finish the cover. The die cuts were arranged by the customer to be mailed directly to her so when she received the book and the die cuts she could complete the design on the front cover. I'm hoping she'll send a picture or post it on face book for us all to see it when it's done. I sent her die cuts of the baby's name to be added with the zoo animal die cuts she ordered.

As always, my little gift with this order is a few blank note cards. I used the Zoology stamp set that I think ties into the zoo animal theme nicely. I have to admit, I'm both happy and suprised in how this book turned out thus far. I'm looking forward to hearing from the book's new owner and again seeing the cover.
