Do-it-yourself book

The book at all times was considered a good gift. Nowadays is not only a gift, but also a serious waste of money. However, as in many other things, you can save money here. After all, the book is very easy to do with your own hands. Fast, simple, without material investment. In addition to saving, such an odd job can not only be a pleasant surprise, but also save family stories, memorable photos, memories of the past and much more. A little patience - and an exclusive book version will be the pride of your archive. Materials for work:
  • text printout - up to 30 sheets;
  • photo paper - 1 sheet ;
  • PVA glue - 1 pencil;
  • paint "gold", scissors, brush.
  • Stages of work:

If the book is half the size of A4 paper, then in the “print” editor, select “scale” - “number of pages per sheet” - “2 pages”.We print the entire volume of the future book (printing should be one-sided). Crop the extra edges.
