One of my very favourite gifts when I was a kid was the board book my mom made me of all of the things my three-year-old self could do â€“ swing, colour, kick soccer ballsâ€¦so when my favourite three-year-old had a birthday recently, I decided that it was time to make him a â€śRudi canâ€¦â€ť book of his own.
I printed out photos, glued them onto coloured cardstock and in my very best printing wrote out descriptions under each picture. I then got the pages laminated (because if thereâ€™s one thing three-year-olds arenâ€™t itâ€™s easy on books!)
For the cover, I cut some chiyogami into triangles, added a ribbon and stamped out â€śRudi is threeâ€ť in the corner.
