Cut the thick paper according to the shape of book you want. The front and back covers are made of one piece and remember to bear in mind the thickness of the book, otherwise the cover may be too short. The front and back covers should be slightly larger than the inside pages.
Before binding, design the cover however you want using edding 2185 gel rollers.
Position the pages between the front and back covers, then punch holes through everything. Bind the pages using the ribbon and the sewing needle.
To finish the book, design the cover pages. With the gel rollers you can decorate as you wish – be it floral patterns, small hearts or neat rows of writing. Then continue with the inside pages.
