You can easily turn a book or journal into an envelope album to store personal ephemera or to document a special occasion. We decided to create a pregnancy keepsake holder to store ultrasound and pregnancy pictures, and to catalog the months of such a sentimental journey. This is a precious keepsake for storing memorabilia from this oh-so-special time of becoming a mother or giving to moms-to-be. After the pregnancy, you can even seal the envelopes and pass the album to your child when he or she is all grown up.
Instructions for 9 Months Project
Start by assembling your pages. There should be nine envelopes — one for each month of the pregnancy — and nine divider pages. Add as many blank pages in-between as you see fit. You can also alter a premade journal and glue envelopes to the pages instead.
Before putting the book together, embellish the envelopes and pages with strips of fabric tape. The tape can also be used to create tabs on the divider pages. On the envelope pages, stamp the months of your pregnancy in black ink. Journal your inner thoughts, stories, choices of names, hopes, and fears on the tabs of the envelopes.
Punch holes in the book cover for the binding using a binderie punch. Instead of using rings, we used seam binding ribbon for a softer and more artful look. Add a strip of the fabric tape to the cover and stamp "9 Months" with the typewriter stamps.
