"When I Grow Up" Kindergarten CD Book

One look at this picture of my Grandson's 1st day of school, I knew I had to make him something special!!   I wish I had thought of the concept behind this but credit is due to a Pinterest crafter.  I personally think the idea is fabulous and also quick to do.  

 First, "The Picture."

Now the idea!!  I used the CD Folder pattern
Diecuts used were the Bosskut Apple and the Clip Board.  I used heavyweight cardstock and made my folder 3 inches by 3 inches.  I also cut a rectangle 4 inches long by 2.10 inches wide for my tab insert.

I printed a postcard size of my photo and placed it on the insert tab.  The apple is for his teacher to write a sweet message (we hope) about Cash at the end of the school year!
You could add his school picture on the back of the insert tab or inside folder.  I would add a journal page for you as his Mom or Grandmother with significant occurrences. Awards, sports or first girlfriend/crush etc.  
You make one of these for each school year and present to your child when he graduates!!!!  What a wonderful and meaningful idea!!

Front Cover

I cut a 2.75 inch square for my cover and then used the Bosskut Gazelle pen feature to write the titles. I added the ribbon, chalked my paper and then added glitter to the name title.  This is an easy level project and completed within 30- 45 minutes.  When I finish the other 11 folders, I will put into a box and give to my daughter to keep up with the pictures and information needed.  Remember, take those
 1st day pictures of your child !
