How to Make a Book for Dad That He’ll Love

I had a lot of fun putting this cute little personalized DIY Father’s Day book together. I think your children will really enjoy writing down some memories and thoughts about their dads.

The first part of the booklet is intended for your child to record their own responses about their father, the second portion is set up for your child to be able to spend some one-on-one time interviewing their dad to find out his response to some fun questions.

This is a neat Father’s Day gift for children of all ages. What child wouldn’t want to help make a book for dad? You can even help your younger children fill it out if need be. I am sure they would have some cute answers.

Make a book for dad

Step 1. Printing, Cutting, and Glueing

Start by printing out the booklet pages from the link above. Cut all the pages in half, keeping them in order. A paper cutter makes it very simple to cut evenly right down the middle of the page.

After that, cut the first part (the cover of the booklet) into a smaller square. Fold the cardstock in half and use a glue stick to glue the title page onto the cover of the booklet.

Step 2. Aligning the Inside Pages

Align the booklet’s inside pages by tapping the stack of the pages on a flat surface. You will want to have the side that will be seen in the finished booklet facing downward to get an even line in the finished product.

Trim about 1/8″ off the binding side of the pages and insert the pages into the cardstock cover.

Step 3. Finishing the Book

Use a hole punch to mark 6 evenly spaced holes down the left side of the cardstock cover.Then, cut a piece of twine about 11 or 12″ long.

To attach the twine, start by making a double knot at the top hole and weaving in and out until you reach the bottom. Finish with another double knot and cut off any excess twine.

Conclusion

There you have it! That’s how you make a book for Dad that is interactive, personalized, and will create lasting memories forever.

Now you are ready to have your children fill out the first few pages with questions about their dads. There is a page that will tell you when it is time to reserve the remaining questions for some one on one time with dad. I hope they enjoy it! Happy Father’s Day!
