Handmade Teddy Bear Books

I made Teddy Bear themed books for my grandchildren. I used an old Teddy Bear calendar from 15 yrs. ago. along with printed pages, scrap scrapbook paper, card stock, contact paper, yarn, tape, and stickers. I laid out manila file folders, taped them together, and accordion folded them.


This is the book folded up before adding anything.

















This is the book laid out ready to work on. I used 3 file folders for each of their books.

















I laid everything out on the table to get an idea of what I wanted for a layout. My granddaughter's book on one side and grandson's book on the other. I wanted each book to be similar in layout.

















My granddaughter Arileise's finished 1st side, along with my grandson Richard's items collected on the opposite side of the table.

















My granddaughter Arileise's finished 1st side, set up to show the accordion folding.
