- Cut cardstock into 6x7" rectangles for the cover and inner pages. Cut a strip of patterned paper and adhere it to the left side of your front cover sheet.
- Hold all your papers together, making sure the edges line up, and use a hole punch to punch five holes down the left edge. If your punch isn't strong enough to go through all the papers at once, punch one sheet at a time, making sure the holes align.
- Thread a leather cord through the holes, binding the book. Decorate the rest of the cover with patterned paper, photos, epoxy stickers, transparencies, or any other embellishments you'd like to use.
