What I’ve been up to in my craft room this weekend…


1. Download interior pages PDF (Card Sketchbook | Page Sketchbook). Print on lightweight printer paper. I printed 5 sheets. Turn over paper and feed through printer again so that it’s double-sided.
2. Cut at dashed line and then fold in half horizontally.
3. Cut patterned paper for cover to 8-1/2″ x 7-1/2″. Fold in half to finished size of 8-1/2″ x 3-3/4″.
4. Place folded interior pages inside cover. Staple along fold.
5. Close book and trim around cut edges with a ruler and craft knife so that the edges are neat.

See this video for further instruction.

NOTE: I actually cut off an additional 1/4″ off the bottom of the sketchbooks so that the finished size was 8-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. I did this so that the edges were cut nice and neat. You don’t have to cut off so much if you don’t want to. In fact, I’m not really sure why I did. :)
