I covered each seperate page with contact paper, making sure o press out any wrinkles. I hole punched the ends and threaded ribbon through the holes to create the binding.
Tips and Ideas:
~Create an ongoing "journal" book, where kids can add to it as often as they like.
~Make one every year, so you can see how your child's personality, favorites and self perception change over time.
~Children are fickle, so remember that they might like Barbie today, but tomorrow they migh like something completely different!
~ I did most of the mounting of the photos, etc. But thinking about it now, I wish I would have had them add more decoration like stickers, etc.
