Traveling Skewer Book

©Anne Rita Taylor 2016

Taking a trip by car, boat or plane? During down time - you can think great thoughts or have interesting conversations with Questions from the Traveling Skewer Book.

Two pieces of wrapping paper or handmade paper - 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches
Two pieces of color coordinated paper -  5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches
2 pieces of ribbon - 15 inches each
Twelve questions to ask while traveling - see below.

Prepare two signatures: 
One piece of handmade paper and one piece of coordinated paper each.
Punch holes in both signatures an inch from the top and bottom.

Place a skewer inside each signature.
Thread the ribbon from the outside into the first signature, around the skewer and out.
Repeat for the second signature using the same ribbon.
Snug up the ends, creating a tight tension.
Tie a knot, make a bow.
Repeat for the other hole.
Snip sharp ends of the skewers.

Use double sided tape to adhere
your questions, such as:
What do you daydream about?
What are your favorite crayon colors?
Did you have something funny happen on a trip?
Which author living or dead would you like to meet?
What would you like to sell in a TV commercial?
What do you miss the most when away from home?

What was your all-time favorite vacation?
If you opened a restaurant what is your house specialty?
What's your favorite fast food meal?
Which would you give up - if you had to - pizza, hamburgers or hot dogs?
What would you perform in a talent show?
Would you rather live in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago or San Francisco?

Actually I prefer Houston, Texas!

Skewer Books are quick to make! Interesting quotes you find make a nice gift too.
