Henry went to the cinema for the first time ever yesterday, and loved it. He also wants to keep the ticket, as he does with pretty much any scrap of paper that comes his way. His room is full of leaflets, brochures, ticket stubs - in fact, any printed material that he happens to come across and considers important enough to keep.
So it occured to me that instead of having all this stuff just floating around his room and making it even more messy than usual, we could stick it all down in one place. I liked the idea of him having a space that he could put together however he liked, and it would contain things that were important to him. I wasn't looking to make anything too "designy" or beautiful as such. More just a simple, colourful book that he would enjoy flicking through because he'd choosen the stuff that went in it.
The following, therefore, is a very simple, basic tutorial for something that you probably don't need a tutorial for, but it might just give you some ideas.
What You Need:
- coloured card, strong enough to stick stuff to
- cardboard for making the covers
- paper for decorating the cover
- punch hole, craft knife, glue, ruler etc
- string for binding
