ABC Quiet Book {C & D}

C is for Counting
For this page I made numbers that could be used for counting. I attached some ribbon with fun beads that Ben can slide back and forth...one of his favorite activities.
A few pointers: 
* Be aware of where the grommets are going! My bottom one was supposed to be on top of the "4" so I just fudged it down a bit...not a big deal, but something I'll watch out for in the future.
* think more carefully about length of ribbon. I wish the "5" would have been closer to the margin so I had room for a longer ribbon. Plus, that would have solved my grommet issue.

D is for Dinosaur
(a stegosaurus to be exact)
This page is meant to help Ben with lacing ... we know he loves putting things "in" so I thought this would be right up his alley. I couldn't find green shoelaces, so I just used black. That's really the only thing I would change.

I used my eyelet punch from my scrapbooking supplies to make the holes for the grommets - it worked perfectly! Be sure to purchase the eyelets with the setting tools. I was going to buy the really cute multi-colored ones, but they didn't come with the setter...next time I will, since I now have one! Plus, using a hammer is always fun!
