Trace the outline of the book onto the wrong side of each of the printed papers and cut out. Place papers in order that you want them to appear, starting with the cover.


Place the paper onto the chipboard and adhere with the glue stick, making sure you glue down all the way to the edges. Use the sanding tool to trim off the excess paper to the edges. Use the inking side of the tool to ink the edges if you want. Repeat these steps for all of the pages.


Use scraps of the paper to cover the spine.  Thread the 8” of ribbon through the spine of the book and knot securely. Tie the 3” lengths of ribbon onto this ribbon. Trim the ends of the ribbon at an angle. Tie on as many ribbons as you desire.


Cut out photos and glue to the pages. You can add stickers, phrase cutouts and other flatter embellishments to decorate the pages even more.
