I've never made a book before, and I've been searching for tutorials online, but what I want to make will have thicker pages than usual. Like two sheets of cardstock or thick scrapbook paper back to back.  I don't think most of the methods I've seen will work well with that thickness, but I'm not sure.  Any advice or tutorials?  I may end up just punching holes and tying with string.

i've made signatures with individual sheets of cardstock like this (sorry it's hard to explain so i made you a horrible picture!)

it can take awhile depending on how many pages you have (w/ groups of 4 or 6 pages) but i think it's worth it to be able to open the pages all the way and have the book lay flat...
hope that helps/makes sense!
