You must first have a guide started (title, description, main image), and then click the "Save & Add Instructables" button. The page loads to a variety of instructables that match the keywords from your title and description. You are not bound to use any of them.

To add an instructable (one at a time), find one that you want to include and open it. On the right hand column, at the bottom of one of the grey boxes titled as "guides", there will be text that says "Add to a guide" and a drop down menu to select the name of your guide (in case you have more than one). Make sure the drop down menu box shows the correct guide name, and then just click on "Add". You've now added 1 instructable to your guide.

You'll see there is a link next to the "add" button which you can use to view your guide, but since you've only added one, you may want to search out more instructables to add. When you do, just repeat the steps (noted above) until you've added all that you want to your guide.

If you have any questions, just reply. ;)

Here's a sample (screenshot) image of what you should be looking for.

To add your own I believe you have to be the creator of the guide. You can contact the creator with a link to see if they'll add it. If you created the guide it should be as simple as editing the guide and clicking add.
