a few weekends ago, i picked up a couple of promotional notepads from a conference i attended.
i cut off the header, then folded the squared paper to form a textblock.
i used some scrapbooking paper to make a cover (inside and outside). the book's dimensions are about 3"x5".
i borrowed the book non-adhesive binding volume 1 from the library. i tried out the long stitch through slotted cover, using some blue sewing thread.
again, i had a bit of a problem with the glue seeping through the cover.
