Cardboard Book

Introduction: Cardboard Book

I am a cardboard blacksmith, hard at work making armor and accessories. Skyrim, Sword Art Online,...

A must for any wizard or warlock!

Step 1: Materials...

Paper (Any kind)

Corrugated cardboard

Tape (Duct tape works best)

Scissors

Brass fasteners (Optional)

Step 2: Pages

Fold all of your paper in half once.

Take a piece of tape and apply to one side of the spine of the paper.

Fold over so the tape is shown.

Continue until all paper is used.

Place a piece of tape down the innermost spine of the bound paper.

Step 3: Cover

Place the bound paper on a sheet of cardboard.

Fold the cardboard along the corrugation.

Place a piece of tape along the outer spine of the cover.

Step 4: Binding

Tear a piece of tape in half down the center.

Repeat until you have four quarter pieces of tape.

Place the tape on the outer spine of the cover, and wrap it around to the inner spine of the paper.

Step 5: the Latch (Optional)

Start with two pieces of cardboard.

Fold one into the latch shape shown.

The other should be left alone for now.

Trace the first latch piece onto the front of the book.

Trace the second onto the back.

Push a brass fastener through the latch pieces.

Connect the latch to the book via the brass fasteners.

Step 6: Finish.

Put a brass fastener onto the second latch piece shown, and fold it in half, also shown. This is for stability.

Color or duct tape for color, or even add more pieces. It's yours to do with what you wish!

Sincerely yours,

Nemesis.

    That's a good way to make your own notebook :)

    I'm going to try to make a 100 leaf version,

    rather than a ten leaf version.

    It may work, or I can throw it in the air and shout "CONFETTI!!"
