First thing I did was cut my backing into 4 6x6 pieces as shown below.
Here you see my scrap paper in piles according to how I am going to use them. The larger pieces will be used to cover my 6x6 backing and the smaller pieces will be used to cut shapes out of them.
Here I cut some extra backing I had to make tabs for my pages using my Cricut. You can get the SVG files for my tabs in the post below.
I then marked my book cover with a pencil so I could put 2 holes on the side. After punching out the holes I then used the book cover as a template for the other pages so all the holes would be in the same place.
Here I am making my binding for my book to hide the edges and make it look more like a book. My book is a half inch thick so my scrap cardstock paper is 3 inches wide.
I measure one inch on my front and back cover to glue my binding down.
After I glued my binding down I used my hole punch to and existing holes as a guide to punch holes into the binding.
I then used ribbon to bind all my pages together. Use extra ribbon so you can open your book.
