Supplies needed: Cardstock, chipboard, trimmer, liquid glue, bone folder or scoring mat, patterned paper and/or Elle's Studio tags, sewing machine, wide Washi tape (I used a 3/4" wide tape)
Step 1: Cut two pieces of chipboard to 2-5/8" x 3.75" for your cover. Cut 3 pieces of cardstock to 5" x 3.5" for your pages. Cut one more piece of cardstock to 2"x 3.5". This will be what attaches your cover to your pages.
Handmade Layers Note Tags and scrap patterned paper. One good tip: Don't adhere your paper or tags all the way to to the crease of your page- it will fold closed better if there is a small gap between the crease and the start of the paper, as you can see below.
Step 6: Put your pages together as they will go in the book and place the small strip of cardstock on the outside, lining up the creases. While holding together with the inside of the book facing you, use your sewing machine and sew along the crease of the pages.
Press the pages in between the inside of the front and back covers, with the sewn pages pushed in about 1/16" from the outside edge of your covers. Make sure that you have your covers turned the correct way before you squeeze!
Step 8: Once dried, run a thin line of glue along the edge of your front and back covers along the spine of your book. This will ensure that your washi stays in place.
