What glue do you use to attach the pictures?
This is a really neat idea, I don't think I've ever seen anything like it before.
Thanks for sharing!

It's pretty easy to do. Kategirl is right, you can add more cards later, if you leave room. The hard part is knowing how much extra room to leave. Leave to much, and the book will look funny when it's closed. Don't leave enough room, and then it won't lay closed if you cram to much in. Plus, the part I hate the most about sewing the pages in is starting, so I prefer to only do that part once.

I could definately do a tutorial this weekend if you want me to.

My grandpa recently died and my mom wanted to put her sympathy cards into a scrapbook. Her idea was to glue the backs of the cards to sheets of paper and put them in a three ring binder. I told her I could make something much much much better. So, this is what I did.
Each card is sewn in individually. She really likes it and everyone she shows it to is really impressed.

You should test out some good old fashioned elmers. I've seen people use it before to create a water drop effect, just not on plants. Hot glue might also work.

I'd recommend taking your stuff to a real print shop to have it done. Where I go, it only costs $3 and they trim the edges too. I think a homemade version would look really messy.

A tacky 80's purse would make an awesome candy bag for this costume.

A CD yearbook would suck, seriously, how many times do you look through the digital pictures on your computer. I went to NYC and took probably 400 photos with my digital and I've looked at them probably twice.  If you wanted to do something a little more sturdy than a stapled book, you could do a perfect bound book. Basically, you make your cover all one piece, back spine front, and your individual pages, you don't have to do two page layouts or anything like that, and you give it all to the print shop and they glue all the pages into the cover like a reader's digest or a national geographic and then they lop off all the edges so they're perfectly square.  I had a couple done at our university print shop and it was somewhere around $3.
