This is a beautiful idea with clear instructions and photos!
I have taken the bookmaking approach for summer holidays as well but have adapted with a scrapbook & markers. I put up a link to it at http://issuu.com/patricia-anne-mcgoldrick/docs/book_your_summer?mode=window&viewMode=doublePage
Your idea of two colours for cover and pages is excellent! Merci.

Although I admit I only used it for inspiration and didn’t follow the directions. Thank you for the idea!

And leagues above the fold-and-staple method, without being too much extra hassle. I emailed this one to my nine year old sis and bet she’ll be making them in the morning.

I haven’t been able to find that specific paper anymore, except at the 70 lb weight. Royal Fiber does have some other color options. Here’s a link to some – http://www.thepapermillstore.com/paper-mills/wausau-paper/royal-fiber?tpms_sheet_size=1231

What a great idea for kids. One thing I thought I would suggest is you could make the red/cover piece a bit taller and fold it up along the bottom edge before assembling. This would create a little pocket that souvenirs could be placed in. Adorable!
