Five-stitch Bookbinding - Materials
Once you get going, these are so easy you'll make a half-dozen at a time.
Materials you'll need for six mini blank books:
Twelve pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper for the pages (9 x 12 or A4 size is also OK; bond, laser printer, or drawing paper)
Two pieces 9 x 12 inch cover stock, oak tag, construction paper, etc. for the covers. I use Strathmore Colored Art Paper for covers because I like its texture and weight. Two pieces are really enough for 9 books.
(optional) Little bits of decorative papers to add to the front.
Thread to stitch it up. Button & Carpet weight thread is perfect, or shoemakers thread, or dental floss (mint or cinnamon for color!)
Heavy needle (darner or embroidery needle)
(optional) Awl or bodkin, or metal hole punch (1/16 inch size, the kind that you hold and hit with a hammer that people use to make holes before they put eyelets in)
Two spring-type clothespins, bulldog clips, or large paper clips
Scissors or paper cutter
Got 'em! Now what? Back to
