Just before we left for Philadelphia, I saw this post on one of the blogs I follow. Perfect timing!
When we weren’t out doing something fun, I was inside having fun photographing Oscar’s toys. Once I had enough combinations, I started putting the book together—two up on 8.5×11, leaving a little extra room on the inside of each page for the binding.
At the office today (I went in early) I printed off the pages on card stock.
Then I cut them in half.
I use this comb binder to put together our church directories. I’m lucky to have access to all the necessary gear.
Next I used the corner rounder (I don’t know what it’s really called) that I use for our laminated retreat name tags. I hope rounding the corners will make the book last longer, less dog-eared.
Then the binding.
Ready to mail! One for now, one for later.
In case you want to make a book for your kid or grandkid, I thought I’d include the pages I made to help get your creative juices flowing.
