Making a Book
There are lots of ways to make books. You can punch three
holes in the side of the paper and put string through all of the pages, but here
we show directions for a book that looks nicer, and lasts a little longer.
Step 1: Cut out two pieces of cardboard (or heavy cardstock)
Lay them on a bigger piece of paper, so they are separated and away from the
Glue boards to paper
Step2: Cut off corners off corners of paper until it touches the
corner of the cardboard.
Cut off half triangles on the out rim to make the spine of the book. Cut them
down to the cardboard (see diagram)
Step 3: glue all edges down around cardboard (the spine will not
have cardboard, so just glue it back onto itself)
Step 4: Fold cover
To add pages: Cut a bunch off paper TWICE as wide as the front cover. Fold them
in half and glue the first side to the inside cover, and the other side to the
next folded page (each page will be double thick).
