Love this custom alphabet photo book idea - made it for my son's 3rd birthday and he was thrilled

DIY Personalized Alphabet Book

I first gave you a glimpse of the personalized alphabet book I made for C here.  He liked the initial inexpensive flip version so much that I decided to make a hard cover copy for his last birthday.  Today I thought I’d share it, in it’s entirety, in case you’d like to attempt something similar.  It can be surprisingly hard to think of something that’s salient to your child for each letter – I’m hoping sharing my picks might help.


Please enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.  Also, you’ll notice there’s not a page for the letter U.  In the book it’s a close up shot of C wearing underwear for the first time. He’s only got one sock on and it’s super cute.  You’ll have to take my word for it though as I’ve decided not to post any photos of my offspring’s bums here on the internet.


Click through for the rest…

C helped build this with his grandpa and daddy last summer.
