Note/Drawing Books for Kids - Your Story Binder/Laminator
If you have a YourStory binder/laminator you can make these books easily. Cut your cover card stock paper 1/2" bigger than you want your book to be. Find the center of the paper and score 1/8" or 1/4" on each side of your center mark (depending on how much paper you put inside). Fold the creases. Use your glue gun and put a good bead of glue all the way down leaving a little area blank at the top and at the bottom. Let the glue dry.
Next, cut whatever paper you want to use for the inside of the book, about 1/4-1/2" smaller than the front cover. Put your inside paper tight to the glued center of the book. Turn your YourStory binder on and push the binder up arrow. When your YourStory is ready, put your book in until you hear the beep. Take your book out and set in the tray to cool.
Put a ribbon on your book and add a nice little note and a few stickers on the first page for your little one.
Your little one will love having his/her very own book.
I also added a design piece of paper to the inside and back of the book covers and to the front and back outside covers. Let your imagination go with designing this book. Add some Christmas pencils and you have a nice stocking stuffer.
