1. take:
- 1 boy
- 2 sheet of paper
- piece of cardboard
- piece of fabric
- pieces of thread
- glue
- some tools
- a computer(for the tutorials)
- a room.
- 1 free months(you'll only need two days)
- Other things I forgot to list

2. get:


so more photo's of the process of making those nice books:

I folded a normal A4 paper (white for the first, a bit rough recycle paper for the second) in half and taped it on my desk and cut it in pieces of 3 by 5 cm.


I folded those in half and put three together to get a so called 'signature'

(10 signatures)

made 4 holes on even distance in the crease of every signature. used this patron for sewing.


cut a piece of fabric(felt for the first one) and three parts of cardboard. one piece of cardboard for the back and two for the front and back, I just guessed the measurements(trial and error).
cut the fabric so you can fold it around the cardboard.
glue the card board to the fabric (I tried sewing but it was too teeny esp because it was my first time sewing Wink )
then glue the other side and fold the fabric around the cardboard so the front looks great.


glue a piece of paper on the back(preferably thick paper)


fold the outside around the binded paper to see if it fits nice and make a bit creases.
open the outside and glue the first and last page of the binded paper to the inside of the cover try to put it in the middle.

and done!

I thought it wasn't difficult.   
(wow that was a long first post.. hello all )
