Using standard 8.5”x11” printer paper, load your printer up with at least 5 sheets of paper.

This will create one book.

If you have multiple kids who want their own book of tools, be sure to multiply the 5 necessary sheets of paper by the number of books you will need.

Here are few suggestions of what to use to set the printable book up for use:

  • Scissors
  • Stapler OR
  • Hole Puncher and String

When the book is printed, grab your pair of scissors to cut down the black lines in the middle of each page.

With the front page that says “My Tool Book” on top, stack the pages on top of each other.

There’s no right or wrong order so don’t worry about keeping the pages ordered.

Now, either take your stapler to bind the book together OR hole punch two holes spaced a few inches apart on the left side or the top of the book.

Take a piece of string and pull it halfway through one hole, and tie a knot.

Repeat this process for the second hole. Voilà! You have a bound book.
