Step 2: The Cutting
You could get away with more but I find 4 works the best.
Next you should take those sheets and fold them in half.
Since I wanted to copy the Moleskine design I took a leaf out of an old notebook and cut the paper down to that size.
What made the process easier and more uniform was after, I made the first set of 4 leaves, I used it as a guide to cut the rest.
paper clips work Great for this.
PS: Take your time. Don't force the scissors or it will end up looking bleh.
