Charity Birthday Books

The primary 7 class that I teach part time have been making birthday books as part of their enterprise to raise money for a charity. They are going to sell the books to their parents/family for £4.00 each and all proceeds of the books are going to their chosen charity.
The charity they have chosen to donate to is run by a local couple and is called the Starfish project. The charity raises money to help look after and provide schooling for orphaned children in Ruiri, Kenya.
All the children have worked really hard making their books. The covers were made from mount board that was covered in black paper. The patterned papers used are from the DCWV range - mainly "All Dressed Up" but there are some from the "Glitter Stack" too. They decorated the insides of the books with flourish and swirls stamps.
I made the titles for their books using the Cricut Design Studio Software.

Here are some pictures.

They are really fabulous Sharon, you must have felt really proud of your class efforts.
Iam sure they could get away with more than £4 for such stunning books.
WHat a great charity to raise for.
