If you have any old books or dictionaries that you don't want to use, this tutorial will be great for you! I'll be showing you how to turn those pages into a book for anything you please.
What You'll Need:
+Torn pages from an old book or dictionary
1// Tear a few pages out of your old book or dictionary. If you want to cut off the rough edges, you can.
2// Collect your sewing essentials which is a string of some sort and a sewing needle.
3// Layer your papers on top of each other. If you want to make the book smaller with more pages, fold it in half which is what I'm doing.
4// To hold the pages together, whip stitch the pages together. To whip stitch, first poke the string through side A's corner. Then go back to Side A and poke another hole. It is shown below.
5// Keep sewing until you get to the other corner. Don't forget to tie the ends into a knot so that the strings don't get caught.
I hope you made your book without any trouble! I think it would be really cute to paint watercolors in it or it could be used as a fabulous scrapbook!
Here are a few ideas before you go:
+ Travel Journal
+ Collection Holder (Tickets, Postcards, etc.)
