What You'll Need:

binding machine and coils or binder rings and 3-hole punch
1. Disassemble the book by removing the staples on the spine.
2. Cut the cover and pages in half.
3. Laminate the pages and trim the excess, but be sure to leave enough lamination on the left side for the binding. [I used to buy the Scotch laminating pouches until I discovered Amazon sells other brands for much cheaper. The quality is just as good and they are sometimes nearly half the price!]
4. Punch holes using a book binding machine or 3-hole punch. I purchased this binding machine several years ago and use it quite frequently! It comes in handy for projects like this. If you don't have a binding machine, binder rings and a 3-hole punch will work just as well!
5. Cut off the excess coil. [Skip this step if you're using a 3-hole punch and binder rings.]
6. Bind the cover and pages.
You can send home high-quality books without worry this way! Your little scholars will love having a rotation of books to read with their families.
