My first DIY Disney post on making your own autograph books was such a big hit, I wanted to do another post with my most recent creations. We are gearing up for our next Disney World trip, and I wanted to make autograph books again. My first books were so much more functional and personal than the ones you can buy at the parks, and I’ve bought plenty of those so I can compare. This time, I let each of my kids choose what theme/character they would like their book designed around. Here are the front and back covers for each of them.
Inside the front cover, I added something different this year. I took a picture of each child in their Mickey ears and then I asked them a few questions:
1. What is your favorite character?
2. What is your favorite ride?
3. What is your favorite park?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. What are you most looking forward to on this trip?
I put their answers next to their picture, as something they can look back on years from now.
As you can see, I have the covers laminated at an office supply store. At home, I trim them down with space around each edge, but the left edge is the closest to the paper. For the inside pages, I bought OfficeMax 5″x8″ blank index cards.
I print on the corners of the pages little images to go with each theme. Here is what I did for these books:
On the backs on these cards, I print “PHOTO” to make sure I save a spot for the picture with that character.
Once I have them put together, and this trip I put 50 cards in each book, I take them back to OfficeMax and have them spiral bind them. The spiral bind makes them so easy to open at the parks. Here are the final books!
If you would like the file to make the inside pages yourself, I have included the file for you to use. Hope this inspires you to DIY Disney for your next trip!
