Disney World Autograph Books

This July my family and I will be flying to Florida to spend time with the most famous mouse on the planet.  Since the entire trip is expensive on its own, my husband and I are finding any possible way to save money.  Even if its on something small, like an autograph book.  We were going to wait to buy one at the park, but one of my friends told me the nicer books start around $30.  That's quite a bit for this family to spend on something like this, so instead we headed over to Michael's Craft Supply and purchased the necessary items to make our own books.

We used:
  • Sketch book for watercoloring (I think.  Basically they had thick enough paper that permanent marker wouldn't bleed through.)
  • Two pieces of scrapbook paper
  • Ribbon
  • Disney Scrapbook embellishments
  • Alphabet scrapbook stickers

For each of the stickers I added some super glue, that's the last thing I want to deal with in the potential 95 degree weather, little characters falling apart. 
 Faith loves princesses, so I let her pick her own stickers, already knowing what she would want.

When we get to the park I plan on getting the characters' autographs, and then taking their pictures with the kids.  That way, I can glue the picture on the same page as the autograph.
