3-ring binders

Any way, time for binders! Rudy made some, which you can see HERE, but I like mine because these are like the kind I use. :) 

You will need:
1. Thin cardboard, like from cereal boxes
2. Duck tape, or scrapbook paper, construction paper, or colored cardstock and packaging tape 
3. A zip-lock bag
4. Paper clips
5. A ruler, pen or pencil, scissors, and glue (hot glue preferable)

Step 1. Take your cardboard, and cut out three rectangles, two of them 3" by 3 1/2", and the other 3/4" (or smaller) by 3 1/2".

Step 2. Lay down the pieces like in the picture, leaving a teensy little space between, on a strip of duck tape, and fold over the edges. (The bigger edges they are, the easier it will be.)
No duck tape? use paper, but you will have to glue down the edges, and the cover them with packaging tape. 

Step 2. Once you've covered it all, fold it.

Step 3. Flatten it out again, and cut a piece of zip-lock bag that lines up with the top, but has a good border on the sides and bottom.

Step 4. Glue the bottom and edges in, and make sure that it's not to tight, so the folder still shuts.

Now you have a clear pocket on the spine, back, and front to stick drawings or schedules. 

Step 5. Now cover the cardboard with more duck tape or paper covered in packaging tape.

Step 6. Glue on little pockets the the front and back.

Step 7.  And glue little curves of paperclip on the spine for rings. Slide doll sized pieces of paper onto them, and curve the edges down, so they don't fall off. 

Done! And that's it for now, Bye!
