I Love You, Mom ... Fill in the Blank Book

This is a little late for Mother's Day, but still a perfect gift to give to mom any time of year. A long time ago I bought my mother a fill in the blank keepsake book to pass down to me. It's full of things that happened during life and prompts to share stories. This book is a similar idea, however it's a gift for YOU to GIVE to Mom.

I partnered with my daughter, and we came up with a sweet printable together. This was no easy feat. I had to do a lot of brainstorming, and I even cheated a little and Googled a few lines to finish for the book. I had so much fun with this project that I decided I'm going to make one for fathers, daughters, sons, husband, wife, grandparents, etc. You can check back here later for more fill in the blank books!

You can download the full Mom Fill in the Blank PDF file here or you can scroll down and pick and choose which pages you want to print. I tried to make a lot! I'll come up with some more for the new books, and probably repeat some of these for the new books.

I printed the pages on the BACK side of letter size scrapbook paper. You could print it on solid colored paper, but I wanted some fun prints for the extra pages to scrapbook photos of me and mom through the years. You could also print these pages double sided so your book is a smaller thickness.

My daughter drew several corner designs for these pages. We've already been brainstorming and starting on the corners for the other books. For boys we have some outer space corners, and a cute train to go along the top and bottom.

After you print the pages out, you will want to cut each page in half on the horizontal line and assemble in whatever order you would like.

To bind the book, you could staple in the middle. Or you could cut the book again down the vertical line and pile the pages on top of each other. I opted for something a little different. Whenever I bind pages together, I like to use my sewing machine. My sewing machine can handle quite a few papers, and it seems a little more professional to me than staples. You could use colored thread. I just went for white this time. If I make another I might use a color thread, or I might print the cover on some colored card stock.

You can print wallet size photos to add on the scrapbook paper!

You can feel free to use the pages for your own PERSONAL use.  But please be kind and do not claim these pictures as your own or offer them for downloads.  Please instead post a link to right back here. Feel free to mix and match between books. Use whatever you like, throw away what you don't like.

I made a blank page, so you can personalize it however you see fit. Or leave it out if you don't have any ideas you want to put down.

I'm sure Mom will love the book! It might even bring a few happy tears!
