Supplies needed: 3 file folders (need to have scored lines at the bottom - mine are from the dollar store), paper trimmer, paper and embellishments to decorate.
Tutorial: (click on the pictures to enlarge and better see the steps) Step 1: Take out a file folder (you need one with scored lines near the fold). Step 2: Open the folder - fold the bottom up roughly 4". Step 3: Fold your folder on the outside scored creased to create a spine. (if your folder doesn't have scored lines - create a spine roughly 1") Step 4: Put your folder into the trimmer and trim at 6" from the outside creases on both sides. This leaves you with a book that is roughly 7 3/4" tall by 6" wide.
Step 5: Now you are left with the base of your book - adhere the sides of the folded piece and along the spine to create pockets. Punch holes in the spine (mine are roughly 1" in from the top and bottom) Step 6: Take your other two folders and cut two pieces that are 7 x 11. (with the center on the fold). Step 7: Layer the two 7x11 pieces and punch holes that match the holes in your book's spine. Step 8: Thread a piece of ribbon through the pages and the spine to hold them in place. Tie on the outside of the book.
