Our books are printed by Amazon.com. The printing process is good, but not always perfect. I.e. the lines on one side of the page may not exactly line up on the other side of the page. For example, on the bingo cards we recommend just cutting one edge (the book spine edge) and leaving the white border. The same goes for the flash cards. You’ll have to cut down the middle on those. If you are not real particular about the borders showing correctly on the front and back you can always cut off the white borders.
The paper cutter is optional, but it will make your job a little easier. Use the utility knife to cut off the spine of the book. Cut as close to the edge of it as possible. You can also CAREFULLY tear off the cover and tear out the individual pages, but be careful...pages will sometimes rip using this method.
Use the back cover for the bingo tokens. If you want more than the 100+ tokens provided either make a copy of the back cover before you start cutting or download our PDF from the downloads page.
I used the paper cutter to cut the strips, but found it easier to use a scissors to cut the individual tokens.
To minimize cutting just cut down the middle and on the right and left of the card depending on the card.
Just make one cut by cutting on the inside edge of the card (what was the inside edge in the book). Do the same on the Africa maps.
You're done! If you want you can laminate cards or put them in plastic covers. Up to you.
