Dinosaur - Layers 1, 3, shadow
I used cardboard and covered it with printed paper on the outside and blue cardstock on the inside
I used my Zutter using Zutter black wires Bind-it-All 3/4" to bind the book with 9 wires
Tied red ribbon to the binding
Used Stickles Gemstones and Crystal Glitter for eyes and mouth
Used typing paper for blank sheets of paper
Inkadinkado clear stamp for "Handmade with Love" on first page

Amber - these were so much fun to make. Your kids will love them. I like the binded books better than the glued books (I made previously), for the little ones. They hold up better for them.
