Baby Shower idea for Dad

This is a little 6x6 book I made with my bind-it-all using the Little Stinker image from KLM Designs. I used an acrylic cover on this and had a hard time getting a good shot that didn't glare. This is a book for the father to be and contains basic diaper changing instructions. The rest of the book is blank for advice from the pros at the baby shower on anything baby. The idea is to take this book to the baby shower, pass it around to the ladies so they can write in their advice and then it gets presented to the father to be-- ya know, when he shows up at the end to see what food is left and load up the car.


My husband likes instructions for things and that's what sparked the idea for this book. It's kind of a gag gift/keepsake for Dad. I kept the design minimal because it's more manly to me and I'm not Eve Fowler.
Thanks for stopping by on this stormy afternoon!

  4. Annie you are so funny! When I was first reading this- I was like ...."Who is Eve Fowler?" Oh yeah...she is talking about ME!!!! I LOVE this idea. Very clever!!! Some men seriously need this! We had three in diapers at one time- so my hubby knows how to change two at once. (You throw your legs over the baby!!!)
    I am done working now- so I might actually start doing some blogging!!!!
