Bookmaking gone Crazy

Filed under: crafts, events — Tags: , , , — SCPL Teens @ 10:46 pm

We had a blast this afternoon making handmade books. We used about 5 or 6 pieces of printer paper for the inside pages and scrapbook paper in cool patterns for the covers. First we stacked our paper together, then folded it in the middle. We had a three hole punch that we used for the holes. We slid our books to the side in the hole puncher and just used two holes.
Then we stretched a rubber band between the holes and secured it with a stick.
Easy as pie. We had cinnamon sticks and regular dowels. The cinnamon sticks were awesome, and I wish we had gotten more of them. But the dowels were pretty too.
These girls are now experts at making books!~
