Happy November 18! Guess what’s special about today? (Nope, it’s not that there’s less than a week until Thanksgiving.) It was on this day in 1477 that the very first book was printed in English. (What’s our source? We’re so glad you asked! It’s the fascinating website On This Day.)
To honor this auspicious date, we thought we’d write about books—personalized storybooks, to be exact. Check out the fun, customizable projects we’ve listed below. They’re a great way to use your Cricut and make a special holiday gift, or to showcase those amazing photographs that are just sitting there on your phone.
So, let’s begin. Once upon a time, the internet was bursting with ways to create your own story…
You probably know that Shutterfly presents hundreds (thousands?) of ways to be creative with photographs, but we especially love their Classroom Stories personalized books. Students can showcase and publish their work—from creative writing to science experiments—using their own text and photos along with Shutterfly’s backgrounds and framing.
Everyone—from the very young to the young-at-heart—wants to feel special, and we can’t think of a better way to do this than with a personalized book. Whether it’s one you and your Cricut make or a tome you design using an online template, personalized books are a great way to give your loved ones their very own happily ever after.
