On the inside i used cardstock paper and some thin printing paper, each had a set of five folded papers, in half.
On the inside i used colored card like paper that i bought a while ago from walmart. (i cut out circles and brought the edges in word in a pinch like manner, to create a flowery look.



Thank you btw Cheesy, it makes me feel accomplished.

So do i, they compliment each other, and i think most people could appreciate the relaxing look of those color combination.
I hope they like them too!! Today is the day i hand it to them.

I really like the way these turned out. I would love to receive them as a gift. I have never tried book binding. It would be neat to see a TUT.

I really sucked at the book binding, but i created a tutorial on my method of going about it.
I will post it soon.

HOW TO BIND, THE METHOD I USED


Put together 4 stacks of papers, with 5 sheets of paper each.
1. Fold Stacks in half.
2. Create holes in the stacks, in pairs. (Use a sharp objects, such as a carpet sewing needle. Or the end of a compass, ghetto like i did.)
3. Pull thick string or thin ribbon through the holes.
4. Stack them side by side. The digram shows a preview of how the sides should look.
5. Tie the sides to each other, then trim extra's off. eg. Go vertically, keep each row to tied to itself. Cross over from Middle Strings progressively tied to outer strings.
