Fold it in half like this...
|Then fold the halves in half -- like this....|
|Now your paper should look like this|
Then fold two edges up about a 1/2 inch (no more)..I just eye ball
everything and never measure
Then fold corners into triangles....
Your paper should now look like this
Fold the flaps in so your paper looks like this -- and now flip the paper over
(so this side is on the table)
Lay this flat on the table
And FOLD down the top as shown about an inch or so.....
Then (I missed a shot here...)
Fold UP from the bottom and tuck the two corners into those little
triangles up top -- you can do this!
Now you will have THIS!
Isn't that just so cool?
You can actually fold it in half either way here, depending on which sides you
want for the cover...
Next you add pages...
Just showing you...
|So now you are going to cut out some cool pages....|
mine are usually 3-1/4" x 5"
Just cut 'em out.....fold in half and press into the spine of the booklet..........
|I hold the paper in place by using binder clips....|
|Use an ice pick or an awl to punch holes so you can sew the binding easier....|
|And here you go -- just sew the pages in place and you are done.|
I used waxed, linen book binding thread but you can use butchers thread or embroidery
