  • Layer sheets of paper
  • Fold the bottom of the stack of layered paper up & align the edges so that all of the layers (tabs) are the same distance apart.
  • Glue or staple together along the folds.
  • For a cover, cut a piece of construction paper (or scrapbook paper) a little longer than the stapled book. Lay the book on top of the colored paper and fold over the top edge. Cut a decorative edge on this folded-over part. Glue the colored paper to the book. (see photo below)
