During unpacking today I came across my daughter's shapes and colors flash cards from the Dollar Store. They were loose and scattered in the bottom of a bag. Forget the box that they came in... that was destroyed the day they came home with us and seeing them all over like that reminded me of a tip that I ran across way back when. I don't remember where I saw it but I knew it would come in handy someday. Book bind them loose flash cards! Yep, it's an awesome and practical tip to keep any set of flash cards together and organized.
I was about half way through my flash card project when Ellie spotted me punching the binding holes in her precious "play school" cards. To a three year old, it was hard to convince her that it was alright and that I wasn't breaking them. She was so relieved to see her new flash card books when I was all done. I am happy to have them bound. Now I don't have to worry about them getting scattered about or keeping them all together as a set.
So how did I do it? I split the deck in to two stacks separated by categories. Luckily, the flash cards included two cards that I could use for front covers... one for each stack. From there I traced around one of the cards onto a piece of pink chipboard and cut it out for the back page. Punched the holes and bound my stacks with my Bind-it-all and that was it. Project done!
I hope you can use this tip. It's handy for sure!
