I've used up scraps of ancient papers, some free wordart printed onto cream card, some old CD wallets, some cut-down manilla envelopes and some 6x4 journalling cards. All cut up, decorated, folded into pockets, and bound with my friend's Bind It All. The closure holds a pen in place so that they can always jot down some notes and is made from a brad, 3 eyelets and a hair elastic - here's how!
|The tabs are decorative rather than functional; plenty of pockets for tags with extra writing space.|
|Free WordArt to brighten up the odd page; manilla envelopes for BIG storage space.|
|Cut down CD wallets provide see-through storage for smaller items like tickets; secured with home-made twine.|
Hoping that they find lots of low risk activities to fill the pages with - and that they come home safe and sound in September!
|That 3rd eyelet is upside down under the brad,|
creating some space between the brad and the front cover for the hair elastic.
