DIY Board Book

DIY Baby board book


Last week I shared some of my favorite shower gifts thus far in my baby shower swag post. One such gift was the B is for Baron book that my friend Jenna made. Baron is our dog, a very handsome vizsla-doberman mix that we got from a shelter almost five years ago. Baron has been our favorite companion/accessory and is the perfect dog for us. He is very obedient, quiet and well mannered. We joke that he acts much more like a cat than a dog. He comes with us most places and was a featured participant in our wedding in August 2013, even being featured on the blog Wedding Dogs!

So it was a very pleasant surprise when my friend made us this board book featuring instagrams of Baron. I asked her to share how she did it so that others out there could make their own. Follow the steps below!
