No Sew Quiet Book Ideas
I’ve become obsessed with all the cute quiet book ideas lately. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, go here. While all of them are completely adorable, I’m not much of a seamstress. So, I have come up with some ways around this obstacle: No Sew Quiet Books! I’ve tried magnetic quiet books, Velcro quiet books, and vinyl sticker quiet books. All were a great success; however, if you are using it for church you might prefer the magnetic or vinyl since Velcro makes noise.
Magnetic No Sew Quiet Book
I get all excited about knowing I created something myself, so I just pulled out all of my scrapbook paper and started cutting out shapes (I don’t have a cricut machine but this would be super easy to create your own pages if you have one)! My main pages were done on card stock and then I applied magnetic paint primer to the back (you can find it online or at Home Depot). I bought the Rustoleum brand, but I feel like Active Wall has better reviews. If you try it, let me know! I then laminated the pages and pieces and put magnets on the back of the pieces. Here are some examples of some of the pages before I laminated them:
Bible Quiet Book
These are a few of my pages from my Bible quiet book, and then I also did a Farm themed one.
Velcro No Sew Quiet Book
For a Velcro version you do the same thing except use Velcro rather than magnets. Here are some cute examples of some that you can do.
For my vinyl quiet books I just found vinyl stickers that I wanted to use and made my pages to correlate. If you have a cricuit machine, you can make your own vinyl sitcker. Best of all they never lose their ability to stick; if by chance they get all grungy you can just wash them. Pictures to come soon.
