Summer Adventure Log
- Scrap fabric
- Needle and thread (preferably something strong)
- White glue
- Cardboard (like the back of a drawing pad)
Following the same method we used for our handmade book project, I updated this Adventure Log to include an absolute necessity for explorers: fold out map pages!
To do this I folded the extra pages so that one side stuck out a bit more than the other (see image above). I chose to use a contrasting color so that they would be easy to find. Once you have your block of paper, insert as many of the fold out pages as you would like, making sure to have the folded in part on the top and all of the facing the same direction (you only want the section with a single layer to be in the binding).
Now that your map pages are in, you can finish the binding in just the same fashion as the simple cloth bound book tutorial.
All that's left to do now, is get out there and explore!
