Fan Club




I made this wee little book for my sister to take with her on her mission.

It is 5x5in (the perfect size to fit.. anywhere really. I wanted her to be able to keep it close). It has photos of all of the fan club members and words of encouragement.

Really I think the best part is the corner stripes on the front and back covers (Italian flag colors), which were Grant's idea. It pays to have a creative brainstormer in the next room.

I've been wanting to make a book just like this...

What company did you use to make yours?

It's truly charming. And darling.

It was made with the book binding company, Asuka Books. You have to have a profess photography business to get an account with them.

Thanks for liking!!

Rach, I would totally like my photo in YOUR fan club book. This is a great idea. I am having lentil soup for lunch today, and am thinking of you.

That is such a brilliant idea and something I'm certain that your sister will cherish and keep close by while on the mission. So fun!
