November 18th Class

With the Bo Bunny Christmas Memories Boardbook Kit, you can make a great gift to keep for yourself or to give away.

Let's get started!

Gather the supplies you will need to make your book.

*Paper Trimmer, Adhesive & Glue Dots, Brown Ink Chalk, Foam Tape, Ruler, Scissors and Paper Scorer or Stylus.

Gather the supplies that came with your kit.

Before I started on my project, I precut and pre-chalked my papers. This is a big time saver.

Front and Back Cover:

Supplies needed:

  • Two:  5 7/8" wide x 6" long Classic Christmas Carol Paper (Dark Side) 
  • One: 1 1/2" wide x 6" long Classic Christmas Stripe Paper (Stripes horizontal)
  • One: 4 3/4" wide x 3 1/4 " long Pine/Evergreen Fine Weave Paper (Dark Side)  
  1. Mount the Classic Christmas Carol paper to the front and back covers.
  2. Take the cream ribbon and wrap around the outside of your book so that half of the ribbon is on the front cover and half is on the back cover. (The instructions that came with the kit says to cut the ribbon 26", but since you will not be using it again on the book, I would not cut it. I did as the instructions said, and I think that the ribbon is too short.)
  3. Adhere the ribbon to the book.  You will tie the ribbon to close your book when you are finished. 
  4. Score the stripe paper 1/2" from each side. This will be your binding of your book. Chalk the paper and mount to the spine of the book. 
  5. Place your stickers to the green paper.
  6. Mount to cover using the foam tape. 
  7. Chalk the egdes of the book.
