My 1st card Book. I used my Demo, leslierich's book that is in her DD gallery as my example. The book cover and 5 CS pages are regular card size, then I added 3/4" to the width of the cover and pages for the binding. The total size is 5 x 5 3/4". I then cut Really Rust 1/8" wider and longer to glue to the front and back creamy caramel to give the book more support. I then scored the covers and pages with my stylus at 3/4 "for the binding. I punched 1/16" holes for the brads. Can use twine too, but I wanted a real strong book for aour 6 yo grandson. I stamped each page and hand wrote easy to read stories for our new reader. What a fun, fun project. Thanks Leslie for your idea.
