Make a textured photo book for baby to explore with their senses and to look at familiar faces when you are on the go!
I made a textured photo book from CD cases. Babies love familiar faces, and they love to touch different textures and explore with their senses, so they will probably love this book too. The fact that it is made from plastic CD cases, makes it slobber proof too and the photos are protected by sticky paper. The different textured materials will just have to take the punch.
How to make a photo book from CD cases
I’ve used copies of photos(more frugal, but not as pretty), cut into circles and stuck them onto clear sticky paper(also cut into circles that will fit onto the CD case). This can easily be peeled off again and changed if needs be.
Then I cut different textured fabric, corrugated craft board and scrapbook paper with raised dots into circles. Again use an old CD as a template so it will fit inside the CD case. This was glued down with a glue gun.
I bound the cases together with duct tape, but one could also keep them loose, just popping one into the diaper bag when you go out(it only takes up a little space this way and you can change them often for a new experience)!
Very easy and quick sensory photo book to make for baby!
Could make a lovely gift too, adding the whole family’s photos in…

Such a fun idea! I love how you put the textures inside each of the clamshell cases. So creative 🙂

Great idea using the CD case! Babies will love this!
Great idea! Could you please show us the binding method you came up with?

I used duct tape and taped two cases together first and then the bunch together
