In order to celebrate one of the biggest day's of the year - On June 9th - Donald Duck will be celebrating his birthday and as part of celebration if I were throwing a party for him I would want to remember it with a scrapbook. After taking all your pictures, why not organize and put them in a book to remember forever. You can add the invite, balloons, party plates and more to this book. You'll be able to save it all in a book you can share with everyone. And here is an idea I got from Spoonful.com

What you'll need to make it:
- Donald Duck Book Cover Template
- 12"x18" sheets of construction paper (2)
- Book (for covering)
- Scotch tape
- Cardstock (white, black, yellow, blue, pink)
- Glue stick
- Black marker
Here's How to Put it together:
- Cut a sheet of construction paper in half lengthwise.
Place the second piece of construction paper on top of the half. Be sure that the bottom of the cut piece lines up with the bottom of the larger piece.
Place the binding of the book in the center of the construction paper.
Fold the top and bottom of the construction paper up so that the top and bottom edge of the book are flush with the ends of the paper.
Open the book and crease the sides of the paper over the back and front covers of the book. Tape these folds in place.
When you close the book you will see that you have a pocket fold on the front and back.
Print the Donald template and cut it out. Trace the pieces onto colored cardstock as specified on the template.
You will construct Donald in two halves. The bottom half, Donald's bill, will be glued to the bottom half of the pocket. Donald's eyes will be glue to the top half. Use the glue stick to glue together Donald's bill, mouth and tongue. Glue together his head, eyes and hat separately.
Glue his bill to the bottom of the pocket -- be sure not to glue the pocket closed.
Glue Donald's head to the top half of the book -- be sure not to glue the pocket closed.
Outline Donald's features using a black marker.
Slip homework assignments, notes, and even pencils into the pocket.
