Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Lego Gift Book Tutorial

Welome to my first tutorial for a fun gift book I made for our grandson Braden who is turning 12 and loves Legos and books!

I began by cutting a backing for the money. Started out with cardboard but switched to black cardstock for a better look. The front cover was cut to the same size in red.

I asked the bank for new bills, but they were only able to provide the best they had. So I ironed them with great results.

I punched out red 1" circles for my Lego bumps

Used pop dots to make them stand proud.

I downloaded the Lego logo and glued it to the book to save time.

After carefully aligning the edges, I clamped them with binder clamps and painted the left edge with Elmer's Rubber Cement. I let it dry for a couple of hours.
