Cute Button Book

 My "Scripture Book" .  See my initials!! (JB)
This is the cover for our little Scripture book we made at one of the Old Fashioned Baby retreats.  We used a wool felt fabric and we sewed buttons onto the fabric, embellishing them with embroidery.  It was so much fun!  Our creativity sparked off each other and many of our book covers looked similar but none were the same.  We did not use a pattern, just a jar full of buttons, embroidery floss with lots of colors and combined imagination!  I made this one. See the Bunny in the left bottom corner.
We used card stock for the cover and for the scriptures.
The scriptures came from the lessons we learned during the weekend.
We punched holes in the cardstock and used ribbon to tie them together.
It is a wonderful spiritual keepsake of the weekend.
We made a scripture book but you could use the idea for anything.  Cute for a photo book too.

I love this little book. And the scriptures you chose are perfect.
Revelations 4:8 always makes me cry with anticipation.
