Simple Book Binding for the Classroom

My Store   One of my greatest resources for my Daycare is garage sales.  I am always amazed at what I can find and the many uses I find for things people sell.  A month ago, I found a treasure.  I almost passed over it, but the price tag sold me.  It was a pretty blue and white laminator, and are you ready for this....bookbinder!  It is called 'Your Story'.   I didn't need another laminator, but for $5.00, I could sure use a bookbinder.  Here is how easy it is.   I made a few books using 8.5 x 11 cardstock for the cover and copy paper for the pages.   Materials: Copy paper (cut into two 5.25 x 8.5-inch pieces) One piece of cardstock (8.5 by ll inch) Scoring board Glue Gun and gorilla glue Your Story Book Binder (or hot plate) Directions: I printed out my paper from the booklet I created in PowerPoint.  The slides in my PowerPoint project were the same dimensions as the inside booklet paper.  If you were leaving the papers blank you would cut the copy paper into 2- 5.25 x 8.
