This is a mini book that I actually made in kit form and took to our family reunion this summer. Since our family is very large and scattered all over the US, I used 50 states to cut out each individual state represented by our family members. I then wrote each family member on their state. We assembled them in a little book and now they have a keepsake that gives them a visual of where all of our family members are located. I was really excited about this project and it was a big hit at our reunion! I intended it for the kids but several adults wanted one for themselves too! I gave out all of the kits that I brought!

Forgot to add that I used 50 states for the state names as well. I also used Fabulous Finds for the cover and pages of these books. That is such a great cartridge for mini books!

No, we didn't put any pictures in it. I think I would have needed to make them bigger to do that! BigGrin They were 6x6. I made the states bigger so that we had room to write all the family names on them. Ohio was especially full! BigGrin
