I homeschool. I don’t write too much about our homeschool adventures because I’m learning as I go. I’ll make an exception here and tell you how I figured out to fix a spiral bound book with a missing cover.
I have a love-hate relationship with spiral-bound books. Your homeschool, like mine, may include several. After making their way down the line (or down a few lines like this hand-me-down book I’m talking about today) you may loose the cover or pages. We’re fixing it.
Gather your supplies. You’ll need:
* the spiral book
* a scissor
* scrap ribbon pieces
* a cheap three prong folder (These are maybe 25¢.)
Here’s how to do it:
1. Loosen folded “spine” of the three prong folder. Basically, you want to make it able to have a thickness at the folded part and not be just flat.
2. Use the holes on one side of the “inside paper holder” to tie the spiral book into place.
3. Use the holes on the other side of the “inside paper holder” to tie the spiral book into place.
4. You now have a new cover on your spiral bound book! (It’s sure cheaper than buying a replacement book.)
Here’s a recap of how to recover a spiral bound book with pictures:
