- 8 pieces
of 8 ½ X 11" paper
thread or other thick thread
Cement or glue
to do it:
- Take 8 pieces of 8 ½" x 11" paper and fold the
paper in half to form a 16-page booklet measuring
8 ½" x 5 ½"
- Thread your needle with about 24 inches of heavy thread
- Beginning at one end of the booklet's centre crease, sew large stitches about 1
inch apart. Leave a 2-inch 'tail' hanging from the first needle hole. When you
reach the end of the crease, turn the booklet over. Now sew back,
bringing the needle through the same holes on the other side of the
book. When you are finished stitching the pages together, tie the
two ends of your thread together on the outside of your booklet.
Trim the ends.
