I created this little booklet out of scrapping paper and regular white printer paper:
It's nothing real special (only had about 5 minutes to make it between nursing the baby and cooking dinner!), but it works. I punched two holes in it, tied some ribbon to hold the pages together, added the stamped "Memories" and tied it to the can:
I just picked a size and went with it (5x7 folded in half) and it fit nicely... hangs about an inch above the bottom of the can and doesn't overwhelm it (when you see the whole can - this view makes it seem like it does, but it doesn't! ;) )
I have decided that this is my new baby shower gift (sorry to any of my preggo friends for spoiling the surprise!). I will make a can to match the decor of the babies room and then fill it with goodies: an outfit, paci, blanket, shampoo, etc... all of those baby necessities! I would have loved receiving this as a gift, and hopefully others will too.
Before I go, here is one of my latest scrapbook designs for my sons book:
