Use your paper trimmer
to cut a 12 x 8 piece from the printed-paper. Place the paper in the
trimmer so that it is measuring out 4 on each side and use the
measurements on the trimmer to make a slit between the 3 and 9 marks
in the middle (Fig. 1)
Take the paper and fold
it in half lengthwise so that it is now 12 x 4, crease well. Fold it
in half vertically so that it is now 6 x 8, crease well. Fold it in
half one more time so that it is now 3 x 8, crease well. Unfold. Take
the paper and fold it in half lengthwise so that it is now 12 x 4,
crease well. Now, pull the middle sections with the slits, outwards and
flatten (Fig. 2). It should now look like an X or cross. Re-fold and
flatten into a book shape.
Now, you can embellish
your books pages, as you want. Use the 1 circle punches and adhere two
together along the page edges for tabs.
