|First, I designed a template. I created this one in Adobe Illustrator |
but you could easily make one in Word or Excel
|I then went through and cropped all the pages down|
|I had extra book rings and a few 3x5 dividers left over from |
other projects. And a few months ago I scored this alphabet stamp
on clearance that ended up working perfectly!
|I went punched holes in all the cards and dividers. |
I also added a cover page and a back page in a thicker stock
(manilla folder) to protect the address book a little better.
|I wanted to add pockets to the covers so he |
has a place to put stamps. So I created a
template from the leftover folder.
|Score the side and bottom flaps and use double sided tape |
to stick them to the covers.
|Don't forget to punch holes|
|And you have your very own address book!|
* Unfortunately when he reported in we were told that personal items would be confiscated and trashed. So I ended up coming home with a few items he wanted to take including his puzzle piece from our matching key ring. He decided to take just one of his favorite cards from the 52 Reasons I Love You. Hopefully he'll be able to sneak that one by. :/
