List of Materials:
Exacto Knife and blades(About one blade per book)
and your choice of Book.
I got my books at Hastings on Clearance for $2.99 a piece.
Step 1: Prep Stages
Take the top cover and about 10 pages of the book and place a plastic grocery bag over these and pull it tight. Then place the book on your preparation area. Using the mod podge and your paint brush cover the outside edge of the book with a good layer of mod podge. Lift the back of the book and glue the back page to the back cover. This helps keep the Book held together later as your start cutting.
Put your book on a flat surface and place as much weight as possible on top of it to keep the pages tightly shut. I used college textbooks.
Let your glue dry for around 8-12 hours for best results
Step 2: Cuttin' Time
Using your exacto blades start to cut through about 80% of the pages in your book. Your blade will cut through about 4-6 pages at a time. So in all honesty this is a great time to catch up on that Netflix instant streaming movie you've been meaning to watch for a month now.
Once youve cut through all the pages you want to. Simply do as you did before. Mod podge the inside and outside of the book and place under weight for 8-12 hours.
