Wow again!

I think I can safely say that crafsters is a website that I will be with for the rest of my life. It never ceases to amaze me.

I'm so excited about these....I have this pack of tarot cards which have been sitting there for years.....only thing is the corners are rounded...dont think I could cope with cutting out hundreds of curves so I'll just make the pad smaller than the cover.

I'm making a list of crafts I can do in the park in the summer....this is one of them.

Thanks Leah.

Yay!  Glad you liked this project.  This may have already been mentioned in this thread but a good tip is that places like Kinkos and Staples will cut paper for you to any size for really cheap.  So you can bring them a huge stack of plain white photocopy paper, for example, and ask them to cut out rectangles that are 5" by 4" (or whatever) and it's around $1.00 per "cut."  So it ends up being just a few bucks no matter how thick the stack of paper is.  This is huge time saver if you're going to make a lot of these.

Wow again!

So I tried and PVA binded some paper sheets together. It was fun and it totally worked with PVA, dont bother yourself to find the glue Leah's mentioned before, PVA is your cheapest solution (and I bet that product is PVA too!).
I bought a big sheet of yellow manifold paper just for 2 bucks to use it in my upcoming exams and experiment this project on a few of them so they would be neat.
I also didn't use clamps either. I place the papers under two big book and on top of them I place a hand sized stone I found in my father's stuff.
It dries fast and even though I applied a couple of layer it turned out invisible...
hope this helps..

This is really awesome. I wonder if this could be my solution to the actual 'how-to' of zine-construction, or, if there is a better way.

silkslippers....could you cut the tarot cards so that the corners are, um, corners and not rounded? sometimes tarot cards have sort of a border around them and it might still look good without them!

I'm so happy I found this thread!  A couple of years back I had to order things from Archie McPhee in Seattle and when they fill your order, they send along a random gift.  They sent me the most HORRIBLE recipes from 1973.  My favorites are the Seafood Mousse (chilled in a fish mold and garnished with carrot peels and olives) and the Scalloped Potatoes and Tongue casserole.
