    This is a great project. I plan on helping my niece to make a book using this method.

    PS. I think I'll use some colored duct tape to strengthen the fold and she'll love adding her favorite color.

    Slow down and use a ruler and knife perhaps? This will give it crisp edges, also thin plywood or fibre-board would be better than cardboard.
