Introduction: Sports Almanac - Back to the Future

About: I am a software developper, addicted to props

Today, I will show how to make a Sports Almanac from Back to the future. There is no sports statistics. It is only for display.

Step 1: Choose an Old Book

For the pages inside the Almanac, choose a book that you don't want anymore. It must be approximatively 22 cm for the height and 15 cm for the width.

Step 2: Remove the Cover

Remove the front cover and the back of the book. You just want to keep the pages (and the binding between all these pages)

Step 3: Print the Almanac Cover

With the height and width of the book, resize the cover of the almanac with Word or any other text/image editor. Print it on glossy paper.

Step 4: Cut, Fold and Glue

Cut the printed covers and fold them like the image above. Then, glue the back cover side under the front cover side.

Step 5: Adapt the Height

With an exacto, remove pages until you've reach the same height as the assemble Almanac cover.

Step 6: Glue the Sides

Once everything is complete, glue the side of the pages with the side of your printed cover.

Step 7: Result

An easy DIY project for everyone who like Back to the future. It cost nothing because I already had everything. Hope you enjoyed it, any comment is welcome.
