Oh my, I might just start crying thinking about how special this custom alphabet book is! At my cousins baby shower a few years ago, she did something similar to this project I will be showing you and it was absolutely adorable. I knew I wanted to make one of these “guest colored” alphabet and number books for my baby shower, and I figured that you ladies would love it! I partnered with Canon to bring you all my printable design files for free! There are 38 sheets total, a sign for your shower, the book cover, letters A-Z and numbers 1-10. Simply print onto 8.5″ x 11″ white cardstock and then have your guests create all the letters and numbers. It’s such a special thing for me to read through this book as I can feel the love of all my friends and family shine through their drawings. I know that Hadley Jane will treasure it forever.

Shower Display

I wanted my guests to be able to show off their artwork and so we hung a few strings between an umbrella and one of the room dividers to create a display for the finished sheets. It was so much fun seeing everyone’s unique drawings!

Next, print all the coloring sheets and the book cover. There are 38 pages total. I used my fabulous new Canon PIXMA TS9521C Crafting Printer for this job because the print quality is exceptional and it can handle thick paper with ease.

Laminate

To ensure that these sentimental pages last through many, many readings you can laminate them! Totally optional, but highly recommended.

Hole Punch

Mark 1″ in from both the top and bottom, then also mark the center of the laminated pages and hole punch. My Crop-a-Dile could punch 6 laminated sheets at one time.

Binder Rings

Next, make sure all your pages are in the correct order and add the binder rings to secure. Finish with a little ribbon bow if you’d like.
