I had been thinking about making a notebook/drawing/art book for the girls for some time. Even had some ideas of what I could use. I decided upon using some colorful cereal boxes. The cereals the girls pick out when they are given choices!
So "Fruity Pebbles" for Liyah & "Cinnamon Toast" for Lauryn....colorful boxes for sure!!
I cut the fronts & backs off the boxes first.
One box measured bigger than the other, but that's ok.
I then measured the paper & cut it to fit inside the covers....
The last two steps may need to be done at your local library or copy center. My dad has a home office with these machines so I'm a lucky duck!!
I laminated the cardboard pieces for the front & back.
Then using his binding machine I punched & bound the paper (I used graph & plain copy paper).
Ta-da!!! Fun, colorful & unique books for the girls to journal, color, draw or write in!!!
