It's relatively cheap, easy and a fun way to customize books at home or even make your own book.
What you will need:
Cardboard or Posterboard
Fabric or paper
Stack of paper
I will start with making your own book which is optional~
Using your exacto knife, puncture through the stack through the fold at even intervals.
[you can also do the same thing with a hole punch
Binding the book:
If you have a thicker book, also cut a strip the length and width of the book's spine.
Cut a piece of fabric or paper an inch- two inches larger than the cardboard pieces laid out.
Pieces should be laid out roughly 1/4-1/2 inch a part...
If you have the extra spine you will need to cut your fabric like the diagram above~
And that's how the pieces should be laid out.
Using the rubber cement, glue the cardboard peices down to the fabric or paper and make sure it's glued nice and flat.
Then just glue on decorations, and you are done~
A nicely bound custom hard cover book!
I hope I explained it clearly~ It really is simple to do, and it only took me like, 20 minutes to make and it looks so cute!
