Aeroplane baby book
This baby book contains 60 baby cards, baby photographs at different stages and other memorabilia such as a lock of baby’s hair, his first swimming cert and more. The baby boy is now about 1 year old and his parents had been collecting little snippets from his life along the way. They wanted to preserve this varied collection of baby keepsakes to look back on in future years.
We decided to make a book that would be a combination of cards, photographs and pages with pockets for memorabilia. The beginning pages of the book have the pattern of a special outfit he wore as a newborn. This baby grow was covered in aeroplanes and clouds – a beautiful start to the book. The book also has a family tree, a page of ‘Firsts’ and other personal details.
I also made a minuature book filled with 3D scans of him during the pregnancy. This little book sits in one of the pockets – a book within a book! The lace ribbon used to tie the book closed is from his christening invitation. This handmade baby book measures 15 x 21 x 7 cms.
