Laura Color Groovin with the Go to Gals: Make Your Own Mini Book

I love it when a simple product inspires an entire project.

Tombow’s new Fastener Tabs (think Velcro, but paper thin) inspired me to create an interactive color book where my cute little man can match colorful stamped images (attached with Fastener Tabs) with the color words on each page.

The pages are secured together with Washi Adhesive Sheets from We R Memory Keepers. I had fun stamping, coloring, and trimming the images to coordinate on each page.
