Corduroy




I saw the idea of framing pages of children's books in the most recent issue of Parents Magazine and I couldn't wait to put some together myself.  We had an extra copy of Corduroy by Don Freeman and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to put it to good use.  I picked up some frames at Target for $3.99 each, and let each of the kids pick out 3 pages that they wanted me to frame and put up in their rooms.  I used an X-Acto knife to clean up the edges and also to cut some spare scrapbook paper in order to back the pages.  Both kids seem to really like having them, but I think I like them even more than they do.  Corduroy was one of my favorite books as a kid, and it is so fun to see these each time I go into their rooms.
