I've been covering a few by cutting the paper larger than the book and "wrapping" it around the corners, but I'm wondering if there's an easier way.

Also, do you put a "binding" on your book or just leave the black edge?

Thanks in advance!

I have tried it both ways and I like the finished look of cutting the paper larger than the book and wrapping it around the corners and covering the inside too. I also found this way is faster and less tedious for me. I then stamp the inside cover with "this book belongs to". I have several differant styles of these stamps that I also use for the back of my bookmarks. Before I put on the inside back cover I use score tape to tape in the ribbon bookmark securely. Some I am putting on the binding and some I leave the black edge depending on what looks best with the dp paper and what ever else I decorate the front of each individual book with. Then I stamp the back of the book with "designed by" and sign each book. I am making a RSVP pen with matching ribbon for each book. I bought 91 books and only have 11 completed. I am really having a tough time deciding on what to price them. I was thinking 6.50 for the set but now think that may be too low. What do you think?
