I got a new Scotch Laminator last fall (on sale!) and had never taken it out of the box because I went out of town to visit family and got home and it was Thanksgiving and Christmas and here it is March! So, I decided to try something with it. I’ve had an idea in mind for awhile. I think that even today, with all of the ebooks and computers kids need to have books in their hands and the earlier that happens the better. But they tend to eat them and tear them. I know you can buy those cardboard books, but my kids ate those too.
So I had an idea to laminate some garage sale or used bookstore books and it’s been rattling around in my head (like five funny monkeys!) for awhile. So, I decided to go ahead and do it. A journey of discovery!
I discovered that the laminator is a joy to use and very very easy. I discovered my hole punch needs to be replace and is the opposite of a joy to use. I discovered this idea is a pretty good one and fun to make (and older children would probably enjoy this with some adult help and supervision and in fact could make their own books for younger siblings/cousins/friends).
I apologize for the photos, I took them with my IPad so they are not my usual quality. So lets just go and check out how to make a Laminated Book.
