DIY Personalized Alphabet Book
For my nephew's second birthday, I made him a personalized alphabet book using pictures I have taken of him and combining them with words he was familiar with. He really loves letters so I thought this would be a fun book for him to look at as he continues to learn and practice his alphabet. But honestly, I think his mom was the one who loved the book the most!
To make the book I made each page in Picasa that easily allows you to make collages and add text. I then uploaded the pages into Shutterfly (which I had a coupon for). For smaller books like this, I think Shutterfly offers a great product and often has promotional coupons that get you nearly free books (I have gotten free book coupons from buying a camera and from Target at the checkout stand on top of other occasional discounts they offer).
