Hard Bond Any Paperback Book

Hello everyone, In this instructable we will be using cardboard to hard bond any paperback book.

Hard bonding paperback books is a easy task that should not take more than 30 minutes.

But, adds more life to thin paper back books.

I used scrap cardboard, cutting tools and glue only to hard bond the books. But the results were awesome.
