DIY Character Autograph Books and Printables

DIY Character Autograph Books and Printables by GYCT

 We had ourselves a Disney adventure recently.  As I was preparing for the trip, I thought of so many fun things to do and ways to make the trip special for my kids.  For us, this is a BIG deal.  So I really wanted them to have their own autograph book.  I know I could just buy them and it wouldn't be a big deal.  But I also knew I could make them and personalize them and they would just love that.  So today, you get some fun free printables and a little tutorial on how to make your own autograph book.

Start by printing off the character cards.  There should be 19 characters plus 2 blank card options for those other characters that aren't included.  Once you've printed, get cutting.

The cards are each 4x5.  So you will want to make sure you cut them so they are even.  You can do a couple at a time if you are using a paper cutter.

Next, grab your hole punch and punch 2 holes in the tops.  Then loop your metal rings through each hole and close them.  That's it.  Simple, fast and perfect for visiting some fun characters.

If you have time, you can make some cute cover's with your little's names on them and favorite characters.  I laminated a front and a back sheet.  That way when they were holding them or put them in a bag they wouldn't get ruined or bent out of shape.  



Now let me say that these books were a HUGE hit.  It was a great conversation starter with each of the characters.  They got really excited when they saw their picture.  And so did my kids.  It was also fun if they didn't have a picture but saw that others did.  They got "angry" and would be silly.
