Today I am sharing the ninth post in the Printable Quiet Book Series. This fun matching page was inspired by my husband's best friend who loves the weather. I wanted to put together a fun page he would like to do with his kids and this is what I came up with. I love all of the darling little weather details!
From the first post: When our first daughter was little, I painstakingly made a felt quiet book. I spent hours cutting out pieces and hand embroidering, it took me months. My daughter loved it and played with it often, but I always wished it was easier to add pages to it. I wanted to add new pieces and new pages, but it seemed like a daunting task.
Our second daughter is just at the age now where I am wishing for a quiet book again. When I started saving ideas and thinking about what I wanted to do for her book, I realized that a printable quiet book would be so much easier. It would be perfect for people who don't think of themselves as crafty and it would be easy to add more pages to if I wanted to later. So the printable quiet book was born.
Between my husband and I, we have finally completed the book and I am in love with it. There are paper dolls and play sets and all sort of amazing that doesn't take more than some printing and cutting.

- a Laminator and Laminating sheets (I love my Scotch Laminator)
Print the pages in color and laminate the background page. Cut out each of the matching cards and then laminate them as well. After they are laminated, cut them out again. There are several ways you can make the cards stick to the background. You can add small squares of felt to the back of each card and a piece on each square on the background. You can also use velcro squares instead of felt. I prefer to use magnet tape on each of the cards and the background.
Add this page to your quiet book, with the pieces. You can glue a sandwich bag to the back of one of the pages to hold the pieces or you can add a small zipper pouch at this point in the book. I prefer the zipper binder pouches.
