Feeling the need to crochet...

« on: May 18, 2006 02:47:16 AM »

I have a 200 page note/sketch book that is made up of singles sheets all glued together at the "spine".

I just wanted to know if there was a way I could put a hard cover on it to prevent all the pages coming off the "spine".

Maybe like the way in this thread? https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86419.0
However I don't know how to do that. Does anyone know of a tutorial or have any instructions for this??

 Oh, it's so easy to do, and so hard to explain.  Takes longer to write the directions than to make it.

I'll see if I can find some online instructions, otherwise head to the library and see if you can get a book by Lynne Perella.

It just involves getting the screws and book board at an art store, drilling holes in the board and the pages, covering it and making the hinge.


Here's a great step by step, and since you already have the book bound, you just need to go to the part where you drill the holes (a regular drill works fine) and assemble the book with the screws.
