I adore name badges, and I’ve used them for so many projects.  Not only are they inexpensive, but they’re the perfect portable size.  I made my twin boys quiet books several years ago using them, and this week I decided it was time for my baby girl to have one too!

Since we’re working on our numbers and shapes, I created a darling set of  printables that I thought would be perfect for the quiet book.  Caroline absolutely loves it, and it tucks right in my diaper bag or purse to use in the car, at church, or while we’re waiting somewhere.

1.  Print the files below onto white cardstock–there’s one for the numbers, and another for shapes.

2.  Use your paper trimmer to cut them to fit inside your name badge holders.  I created the files to fit a name badge holder that’s a little over 3×4, and will fit a card that’s a around 2×3.  There is plenty of white space around the printables though, to allow for cutting them bigger or smaller, depending on what you need.

3.  Insert them into the name badge holders.

4.  Create a cover for the quiet book! ! printed out the title on a piece of white card stock, then distressed the edges with Distress Ink and used double stick tape to attach it to a cute piece of scrapbook paper cut to size. Slide it into the top of the first name badge holder.

5.  Slide all the pages onto a silver book ring, then tie ribbon around the ring for embellishment.

That’s it! Super easy, and super cute!
