Quick & Easy DIY Nomenclature Booklets

We purchased our Nomenclature books & 3 Part Cards at Montessori Print Shop  

I bought a package of duo-tang/ report covers from Staples and cut them about a 1/2" from the end of my booklet.  I cut the cover again to fit the height of my booklets.  The result is simply tiny duo-tangs.  Now that they are cut down - each folder is left with one butterfly fastener.  I bought a package of these fasteners and hole punched the new tiny folder to give it two fasteners.  I cut down the booklets and hole punched them.  I took the book cover, and covered it with clear contact  paper leaving a small edge around it, and adhered it to the cover.

You do need to hole punch your pages fairly close to the edge to ensure the text is very visible when turning the pages. You can also simply punch new holes in the duo-tang that are further out.
