Does your kiddo have a tendency to destroy their books? You know- chew on, slobber, rip…
Little Miss can be a bit enthusiastic when she reads so I decided to make her very own board book that she can do whatever she wants with and it didn’t cost me a cent!
It’s definitely a hit! She loves it so much she won’t even let me read it to her.
This book is all hers:)
- Cardboard Restaurant coasters: mine are courtesy of Outback
- Scraps of paper
- Clear contact paper
- Hole puncher
1. Cut your paper to fit the coasters and decide the order for your pages
2. I used mod podge to finish my pages, but it seemed to get a bit sticky in the heat. Instead I would laminate the pages or cover them with clear contact paper. Here’s a quick tour of my book:
3. If you have a lift-the-flap enthusiast in your house you can also add some flaps. I mod podged both sides of mine to make them sturdier. I stood them up to dry (again…. I’d go with laminating)
4. Score the edge of each flap and then glue down.
5. Punch holes and bind. I used jump rings at first, but little miss figured out how to get those off, so we switched to ribbon.
