Single Paper Book by JamesDarrow Single Paper Book by JamesDarrow
Journal with all my books / book making tutorials

I was asked if there was a way to make a book without sewing, so unless you use staples or something like that, this is the only thing I could think of.

Here is a really simple book that you can make anywhere at anytime that doesn't require anything more than a single piece of paper and some scissors.

As long as people keep requesting these tutorials, I'm more than happy to make them.

Thanks for sharing these simple instructions. I combined 2 of these cute mini books to create a place to tape my plant labels. So quick and easy!  Thank you so much! Here's the picture of it from my Pinterest board: www.pinterest.com/pin/20618048…

Hello, I have some old journal pages that were written on 8.5 x 11 copy paper. I don't want to scan them because I like the (somewhat distressed)look of the pages. Is it possible to put the holes in groups of pages and sew them together without the "signatures" you have spoken of before? Is there another alternative that I am not aware of?

Well, although its a great tutorial, it did not really help my delemna. However, in the meantime, I thought about taking long thin (1" wide) pieces of card stock and folding them in half to create a kind of really narrow folder to put 10-12 sheets in and sew a number of those together to create the book?

Would that be feasible?
