Backstory: I do not know what it is but I want to say that most of the times when I go to Michael’s, I end up at least eyeing these Value Pack of blank cards that come in cream, white and I think a darker brown color. Perhaps initially I always see so much potiental in what I could do with them…only to later have them go to waste or be thrown away. BUT I am proud to say, NOT THIS TIME. I decided to workwithit to create little storybooks.
What I Used:
3 Value Pack Blank Cards ( the smaller ones), but they do come in multiple sizes
Hot Glue Gun ( I wanted to use staples but I could not find mine but using a stapler is a fine alternative)
Stamps/Ink ( optional). Use whatever you would like to decorate/write in your book ( Crayons, color pencils, markers, etc).
How It’s Done:
Step 1) Take your cards and fold them in half ( use as many cards as you would like depending on how big you want your book to be)
Step 2) Before binding your book together, go ahead and write/decorate the pages as you please. * It can be a bit more difficult to draw/write on an already binded book so write your little story, color your little book;etc.
Step 3) Take a hot glue gun ( starting with your cover card), glue together each card in the middle. Make sure the order is correct before you glue it together.* I did not and let’s just say ” The End” is actually before the end ;p
The sky really is the limit with these little books and you do not have to limit them to just these blank cards, you can use any kind of notecards/small cards to create small, personalized little books. If you were going to name your little book anything, what would it be titled and what would it be about ? Let me know in the comment section below ♥
Until next time, stayworking ~
