Making Progress: Week Nine

I've been making the logbooks for all those who attend the Harry Potter Marathon that Carma and I are hosting in a few weeks. The following photos show a few of the steps it takes to put the books together.
First, I had to create my own paper for the covers because I couldn't find any Harry Potter paper that I liked. I used wordle.net to create it. Once I find the link, I will add it on here so it can be used by any who want it. Once I had the paper made, I had to cut it down to the right size, slightly bigger than the chipboard.

I then had to cut the chipboard to the correct size, glue my paper to it, and fold over and glue the edges. Next I had to put an inside cover on. I just used some green paper that looked good with the colors on the outside cover.

Finished Covers
The next step was to make the pages. I cut white card stock (8 1/2 x 11) into 1/4 sheets. I put 25 of these sheets with each set of covers. I then had to punch the holes in the covers and all of the pages. Carma has some nifty tools that make this really easy. I cut some binding down to the right size and bound everything together. I made 14 of these logbooks, plus a couple of larger ones for Carma and I.
The Finished Product
Having these logbooks done brings me one step closer to being ready for our marathon! I'm really excited for this event!
