Need a spot for jotting down all your great ideas? This handy book can be made in less than ten minutes with some recycled cardboard and paper. Grab some glue and get started!

Kids love making this book and drawing all their favorite things inside. My 5 year old can make these!

I make kits for larger books: http://www.tamijo.net

Step 1: Collect 5 items

You will need:
cardboard from the recycle bin
paper cutter (you can also use a straight edge, pencil and scissors)
one 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock
glue stick
rubber band

Now find a clean work space.
This is such a good idea. No loose pages.
 Love that you featured the organic seal on the cover. If it was printed on a tee shirt I would wear it!
this book  is so awesome!
This was so easy, thanks to your 'instructable'. I've made them into cards for my friends. These are just too sweet!
Great! I love it when other people discover this fun way to make small books. The book can be scaled to a larger size and works well as a photo album. You can see how they look on my website: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.tamijo.net">http://www.tamijo.net</a><br/>
What's it look like when you open it at the end?
