Love Letters from the past


I'm a very lucky granddaughter.  My grandmother was thoughtful enough to keep all the letters my grandfather sent to her in 1948 from Milwaukee to her in Spokane, 66 years ago.  My mother keeps the originals for safekeeping, but she lives a few states away.  In the meantime, my grandmother keeps typed copies of the letters in a big scrapbook.  For her birthday this year I decided to scan the originals (got to keep up with the digital age now-a-days) and make a book with them. That way she can still see his typed and handwritten notes from him.  Now I've never made a book before, but thanks to the handy instructions here Instructables this way a fairly easy process.
