I’m not much of a sewer, so when I first heard of Quiet Books I looked for a no-sew printable quiet book. Sadly I did not find one, and decided to make my own! Remember this Quiet Book post? After I designed a Bible version and a Farm Life version, I then had my Friend Hillary used her graphic design skills to make it all look professional and fun.
Here’s a quick video on putting the quiet books together (you can get them here):
Tips on putting the Printable Quiet Book Together:
First print your quiet book pages. Laminating can be expensive, so if you don’t already have a laminator and you know you will be doing future projects like this, I recommend getting your own pouch laminator. I used to recommend the Apache for a cheap laminator, but it does not laminate the thicker pouches very well I have fount out. Just get the Scotch and you will be set. Also, I recommend 5 or 7 MIL thickness on the pouches so that your Quiet Book is more durable. I have always just bought the Lamination Depot brand, so I don’t have recommendations on any other brands than that. If you know you will be laminating other projects, they sale fun variety packs with different sized pouches that you can experiment with. After laminating my quiet books, I bound them with coil binding for about $2 or less. For attaching the pieces to the pages, I used velcro dots.
Here’s a mini sample of the pages (there are also 8 sticker/cutout pages that go with each page):
Here’s what the Quiet Books looks like once it’s laminated and bound:
