Bellflower Books Review And Giveaway

Bellflower Books Review And Giveaway

Bellflower Books is the creation of two childhood friends, Kerry and Heather.  It started as a search for meaningful gifts that led them to remember a favorite gift they had once received themselves.  It was a collection of letters and photos from their closest friends and family members!  When these two friends set out to re-create this gift for their own family and friends, they quickly realized how challenging and time consuming it was to gather these items by mail from loved ones.

These two friends wondered how the whole process could be made simpler. What if there was a way you could collectively put a project like this together completely online?  That's when Bellflower Books was born!  The process itself is actually super simple and can be done in just 6 easy steps.

Six Easy Steps To Creating Your Personalized Bellflower Book:

1) Create a free account online at www.BellflowerBooks.com

2) Choose your favorite book style

3) Gather email addresses from family and friends that you would like to participate in making this book
4) Use the simple and handy web tools to help walk you through the book building process

 5) Preview your book online and make any final edits

6) Place your order and you're all set!

Bellflower Books gave me the opportunity to review what they are all about and provided me with a lovely sample book {pictured above} and a branded tote bag.  Now I have made a few photo books in the past as gifts for family members through other online services, but I had never even considered putting a book together with the idea of incorporating other family members input.  The whole concept behind Bellflower Books is so new, fresh, and meaningful!  

While looking over the sample book that was provided to me, I was immediately impressed with the quality of the book.  It was well crafted and the pages were nice and big, easy to put a nice long heartfelt message and a good sized photo on each individual page.  It's so interesting to see how the input of each different family member works together in the book.  I'm thinking this is a gift that anyone would be lucky to receive!  The collective preservation of various memories in one keepsake book is something that I know I would highly treasure myself.

Bellflower Books measure 12 x 12 and are only printed on quality materials.  They come with a nice hard cover that includes a protective coating to prevent wear and tear.  The pages of these books contain a silk finish that look amazing and add to the overall elegance.
