Bound Password Book
by Cheryl Gorka
Bind your own book to store passwords.
- Template for the inner pages, links can be found in step one (links below)
- Paper trimmer
- Bone folder
- Binding tool or hole punch and twine
- Strong adhesive
- Two 7 1/2" x 5 3/4" pieces of cardboard
- Two 9 1/2" x 7 3/4" pieces of cardstock
- Two 7" x 5 1/4" pieces of patterned paper
Cut all the inner pages in half across the width. Each half will be 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Trim 1 1/4" off of the left side of the page.
The trimmed size of your inner pages is 5 1/2" x 7 1/4".
Cut two pieces of cardboard to 5 3/4" x 7 1/2". For a more finished look, the covers are slightly larger than the inner pages.
Recycled cereal boxes work well. If you would like a thicker cover, cut 4 pieces of cardboard and adhere two together for each cover.
Cut two pieces of cardstock to cover the outside of the password book to 9 1/2" x 7 3/4". The paper is one inch larger than the cardboard on each side.
Thinner cardstock is easier to work with and will fold to have more crisp edges.
Adhere cardboard cover in the center of the paper using a strong adhesive. Repeat steps 7 through 12 for the second cover.
Crease the paper along the edges of the cardboard. Then crease the corners.
This will help you create a nice, crisp edge on the cover of the book.
Put strong adhesive around the inside edge of the cardboard.
Fold down the corners of the paper and adhere to the cardboard.
Fold in the edges and adhere to the cardboard.
Cut two pieces of Patterned Paper to 7" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the covers.
Adhere with strong adhesive to the center of your cover on the side with the folded edges.
Bind the password book.
-Refer to the instructions that come with your tool to correctly bind your project.
-If you do not have a binding tool, you can punch holes in the edge and lace the pages together with ribbon or twine.
Decorate the password book.
