1. Cut the following pieces:
x 6” squares of red paper
Two, 7” x 1-1/2” pieces of yellow paper
6” x 2½” piece of blue paper (use paper
edgers along one 6” edge)
Enough 6” x 6” pieces of white paper for all
2. Draw a line
½” from the edge of one piece of the white paper.
Mark 2” from the top of the paper and the bottom of
the paper, along this line. Punch a hole at each mark, and
then use this as a guide to punch holes in the red and white
pieces of paper. Fold the blue strip of paper in half and
then use the guide to mark and punch the holes on each side
of the fold.
3. Use the alphabet stencil and black marker to letter the
words, “School Friends” on the yellow strips of
paper. Glue the strips at an angle across one piece of red
paper. Then trim so that the ends are even with the edges.
4. Ask your friends to write their name and glue a small school
photo of themselves on one side of a white sheet of paper.
They can also add a personal note to you, or any other information
you would like to have.
5. Assemble all of the white pages between the red covers
aligning the holes. Wrap the blue strip over the left side.
It can be glued to the back if desired. Thread the ends of
a rubber band from the back up through the holes to the front
then pull the ends over a pencil to hold in place.
may need to make the blue strip wider and use a larger rubber
band if you have lots of pages for your book.
