Lily's favorite thing to do is to look at pictures of family. Since not all of our family lives close, I decided to make board books with pictures of everyone and names for her to look at. This is one of the only things that keeps her consistently quiet during church and entertained in the car.
First, I found board books to use. You can use any old board books you find at your house or a thrift store. I decided to purchase blank 5" x 5" square board books for this project here. They were super cheap (only $1.30 per book) but there is a minimum purchase requirement of $25.
Lily's middle and last name were blurred out in the picture above for privacy reasons.
Then I printed the pages out using the highest quality my printer allowed. I cut each page to size using my paper cutter, leaving the corners angled instead of rounded like the board book.
I glued each page on with glue stick, using an old insurance card to smooth each page to the book. Any card would work, but make sure it's one you don't care about as it might get glue on it.
After the glue was dry, I tested the corners to make sure they were secure and added more glue if necessary. Then I trimmed the corners from the back of each page to match the corners in the book.
After the bindings dried, I glued the front and back cover on to each book and trimmed each of the corners. I sprayed with finishing spray generously and let dry. Then I covered each cover with clear contact paper for extra durability.
