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
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
Now find a clean work space.
Step 2: Cut the Cardboard
Step 3: Cut the Card Stock
Step 4: Fold the Inside Pages of Your Idea Book
Repeat these three folds with the other two squares.
Step 5: Arrange the Inside Pages
Step 6: Glue the Pages Together
Repeat using the left page, covering the glue on the square of the center page. (First image)
This is how it will look when you are done. (Second image)
Step 8: Attach the Cover of the Book
Glue the top of the folded pages. (Second image)
Attach the cardboard cover. Be sure to keep your cardboard design oriented correctly. (Third image)
Attach a rubber band around the outside. Let the glue dry for a minute or so. You can also set it under some books to rest while you clean up.
