Friendship book


A friendship book is a little book made for your penpals. They are usually decorated and the person who starts the book writes their name and address as the first person sending the book. People often include a list of interests as well. The FB is then passed around from penpal to penpal, and can often also become a way for one to meet new penpals. Most people hope to see the book again once it is full so they add their return address to the back cover of the book too, or inscribe "Return to Sender" on it. People also sometimes make FBs for someone else rather than themselves, in which case they write the name and address of the recipient on the front/at the top. Some people find friendship books fun because you can see where they have been in a trail back to the original sender/recipient.

It’s really easy to make them yourself...and it’s much fun.

  1.     Use a colored paper and fold it. Than write FB on it
  2.     Than start to decorate it, you can use deco tape, stickers etc. You can go all out and buy acid-free paper and scrapbooking supplies, or explore your attic or basement for magazines, greeting cards, wrapping paper, wall paper samples or scraps of fabric, buttons, beads, ribbons or yarn.
  3.     Write on the first page your name and address (if you want the book return home when its full) and the name and address for the person you made it for. 
  4.     Add some papers in the fb, so other people can also write their name and address.  
  5.     Sent the fb to your pen pal, so it can start travelling around the world.

Have fun with making your own fb!!
