Kippy and Bonnie’s Continuing Guide to Making Holiday Gifts

The adventure of making a picture book continues (part two)

Kippy and I have been continuing our project, but it is getting time to figure out what size to make the pictures.  Since I wanted to make several as gifts, I choose inexpensive little books from Barnes & Noble.

The sketch pads, at $3.99 each are about 6” ½ by 4 ¼”.

The little black moleskin books come 3 to a package for around $6.00 for the package.  They are each 5 ½ “ by 3 ½”.  The little notebook with brown pages (purchase at Borders for about $3.00—is 5 ¾” by 4 ¾”.  In all these books, the pages are blank.

They have a lot of pages, but don’t feel like you have to fill them up.  Your recipient can add more pictures or use it as a journal.  All of the books can be used horizontally or vertically.  Now you can figure out what size photos you want before you print them.

Here’s how Kip and I are doing on our project so far:
