One of J’s favorite books right now is Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever. He loves going through page after page, asking “what’s that?”. I had a flash of inspiration one afternoon to put together all of his likes and dislikes in a best word book ever inspired print. It was a hit at the party, especially with the grandparents! Here is how I displayed it:
Here is a close up:
As complicated as it may look, it was quite simple to put together. Here are the steps of what I did:
First, I put together all the wording, even the words that were going to go with the pictures. I spaced them out evenly among the page.
Second, I copy and pasted pictures of items to match the wording. I checked the pixel size of the images and then made them bigger or smaller on the page to match the idea of the book. *Make sure you select the images “behind words” so they are easy to move around.
Third, just check for formatting, and print on cardstock. All done! It’s a great little treasure for a birthday party, you could even make it smaller and give them as keepsakes for the grandparents!
