Alphabet Book {May Arts | DCWV | Tombow}

We are three way hopping with May Arts, DCWV, and Tombow all week long!


And I have a little guy in our house (Gabe is now THREE!) and we've been practicing our alphabet. He's got the song down pat, so we're moving onto recognizing the letters. When the Alpha Zoo stack by DCWV showed up at my door, I knew what had to be done! Add some May Arts ribbon binding and tabs, a bit of Tombow Adhesive and we have a super bright and fun set of alphabet flash cards for our little guy.


To make it a little more fun, I backed the alphabet squares with a bright and glittery alpha sheet from the same stack. I used Tombow Adhesive to glue the two together, then trimmed them out pretty close to the blue background squares.


Then two eyelets on each card, one for a ribbon tab and one for the binding.



Now don't forget to hop and leave comments! there are PRIZES up for grabs with products from all three companies :)



On today's hop we also have fellow Ribbonistas

and 

and on the DCWV & Tombow side:

ENJOY!! -DeeDee
