I spent 2 days designing this bad boy. I wanted something that the kids could keep track of where we’re visiting in our literature. Also, I wanted a portable map, so that when we’re reading on the front porch we don’t have to tromp upstairs to the big map. Plus, i wanted something fun like a passport. So I created this (photos are poor quality because, it’s night and I didn’t want to get out my mini studio ~ sorry):
Tomorrow we’re going to take “passport photos” and paste them in. The template is in black & white ~ so you’ll have to color them in. I don’t want anyone else to have to waste 2 days creating these, so here’s the link to download them for yourself.
My brain works well for the creative part ~ but the technical part stumped me It was trial and error to sort out how to get them back to back & facing the right direction. I’ll let you sort that one out for yourself with your own printer. I printed the sleeve on cardstock (a whole other battle with the printer) and we’re going to laminate the cover. I’ll probably end up using a few strips of packing tape.
The files are pdf and in a zipped folder that will probably take a bit to download.
Enjoy. The Link: DOWNLOAD THE FILE HERE
I’ve heard from a few people that they are unable to download from the link above. It appears most of the issues are happening in firefox. If you are having issues, try another browser. I’m embedding it below as well.
If you love it, I’d love to hear from you. Comments thrill me to my toes.
