"Family" word book I made for my sister-in-law's birthday

This is a bobunny word book that I decorated for my sister-in-law's 30th birthday. I used pictures of her and her husband and their 5 children. I think it turned out really cute and she really loved it. She had been hinting to me for weeks that she really wanted a scrapbook, so I thought this would be cute and fun to make for her. TFL.

Stampin' Meg, it actually only took about 2 weeks. They are so much fun to make, so you just want to work on them all the time.

I saw your beautiful word book and wondered if you could tell me how you got the paper to match so perfectly on the letters? Do you just trace and cut? I have wanted to try one but haven't been sure how. Thanks

I love your word books and I just made one but my paper overlaps the edges of my words. Do you have any tips on how you make them come out so perfectly? and what do you use to attach the paper to the letters?
Thanks

I use mod podge to attach the paper to the letters. Then I use my exacto knife to cut around the edges. I try to get as close as I can with my exacto knife but if there is a little paper on the edge, I'll take a finger nail file and smooth out the edges.
