DIY Personalized Alphabet Book

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).

Pin It!

  1. I made my daughter one of these awhile back when Shutterfly was running a special! She loves it, and we flip through it constantly while she learns words. We were just talking this weekend about making her a new one! This is such an awesome gift.

  3. So cute! I made one of these for my daughter's teacher as a gift - each kid was the letter their name started with. Such a great gift idea and the kids thought they were famous :) I LOVE your version!

  11. So sweet!! He will treasure this book forever. How cool it will be for him to pass this down someday.
    I love the idea too. I need to find the time to make one for my jewelry biz. It would be great to have a "catalog" for folks to flip through
