We are preparing for our annual trip to Disney World, and since we go every year we own all of the different autograph books that are sold in Disney World. We want to have something a little different, so Hailey decided that she wanted to make her own for this trip.
Here is what we used to make our books:
small scrapbooks (you can use any size you like, but we picked 6×6)
refill pages for the scrapbooks
I took the cardstock to Kinkos and brought one of the pages from the scrapbook and asked them to cut the cardstock down to the same size and to drill holes in the same spots. I’m sure I could have done it myself, but it only cost about $5, so it was worth it to me to have them do it.
I decorated the front of Hunter’s book since he isn’t old enough to do it.
Then I put the cardstock in between all of the scrapbook pages, so that every other page will be a spot for a character to sign. Then when we get home we’ll add pictures with the characters. The book only came with 10 pages in it, so I added some of the refills for the scrapbook pages so that we will have room for more pictures and autographs.
Hailey made 2 books- this is her first one. She figured out how she wanted everything set up and did it all herself.
Hailey’s other book with her favorite princess on the cover.
We did the inside of Hailey’s books the same as Hunter’s. Every other page is cardstock and I added extra refill pages. She loves to meet the characters and get autographs, so we needed a lot of pages.
Just so you can see what the inside looks like- Hailey will have a character sign the cardstock. When we get home she’ll add a picture of that character in the photo page.

Guess where we’re going?!?!? It’s time for our annual vacation to the most magical place on earth!!
We are getting ready for our annual trip to Disney World soon. This year I decided I wanted to make autograph books for Hailey rather than buying them in Disney World. The last few years the autograph books have been the same and I didn’t want to get them same thing again, so I figured I’d be really original and make them for her.
I wasn’t really sure where to start so my mom met me at the craft store (AC Moore and Michaels) to help me figure out what to get. We ended up getting a small 5×7 size photo album/scrapbook. I also bought colored cardstock and scrapbook stickers to decorate with.
This is the cover of the first book.
Inside there is a variety of pastel colored cardstock and the photo album pages that came with the book. They are every other page so that she can get an autograph on one page and when we get home we can put that characters picture next to the autograph.
And since she loves getting autographs so much I made 2 books to make sure we don’t run out of pages.
We are looking forward to a fall trip to Disney World and everyday Hailey asks me, “Do we have 2 more days?” It’s hard to explain how long a couple more months will be, so we made a count down today.
I started the countdown at 50- I made 50 Mickey Mouse shaped heads and numbered them. Hailey and I glued them onto cardboard and then she added some Disney stickers to the countdown.
I put contact paper over the countdown (we’ll reuse it every time we go). Mickey Mouse (over on the left) will be moved each day. At the end of the countdown is the castle since that’s where we’ll be!
