Easter Books








For my YW Easter lesson I decided to make each girl an Easter book. Simple idea in the beginning, but NOT so much in the end!!! I made it of the week leading up to Easter. Each day there are events that I wanted the girls to know about. Each little flap in the photo flip book has a different day on it. I downloaded pictures of the lds website and printed wallet size pictures to go with some of the events.








I used cute Stampin Up designer series paper that I have had for years! The flip book is just 2 pieces of 12x12 paper cut in half and scored at 3 and 9 in...making 3 inch flaps and a 6 inch page.








I put all the text into word and sized everything to fit. This took some time, so I have it all saved if anyone wants it!








I didn't have time to add cute embellishments in it, but that would be cute!








I used a couple pass along cards too.
























I glued ribbon on the back (you are really to cut a little place for it to go through on the back cover, but I didn't make time for that) and then vinyled the title page.
























































I do love how they turned out.









After we read and discussed the book, I showed them An Easter Declaration. I love the 2 1/2 minute video. Then we finished it all off with my Chocolate PB Eggs!!! The girls loved the lesson and gave me hugs afterward!



I have had a Simplify sign up in my house for awhile. My friend pointed this out to me when I told her about these books...so my new motto is BE COMPLICATED! I love that more.

  2. Melinda,
    I love these! I would love to make these. And one of my favorite things about you is that you are complicated. This project was definitely worth your time. I wish we were still in the same city, but not in the desert.
