1. Find a board book, or if you are planning on doing TONS, go to Bare Books and purchase empty ones. (much easier and cheaper if you are planning on doing lots-- for a beginner it wouldn't be too great because they require an order of at least $20.00 -- that's quite a few books :D)
12. Next trim down any pages that don't fit and round ONLY the corner on the outside edge. This also why I like to put my pages in my book first-- that way I know which edge needs rounded and I don't clip the wrong side. (lots of trial and error my dear friends)
13. This is one of my favorite touches to any book I make. I've had people ask if I sew the paper onto the book. The answer is NO WAY JOSE! Could you imagine--talk about industrial machine. I have a Singer $90.00 Walmart special-- it works beautifully. Paper does tend to dull the needle so if you sew a lot you might want to use a separate needle for paper. (I just use the same one). I only sew the pages with pockets and I only sew the three outer edges of the pocket page. I also only sew the top and bottom of the page opposite of the pocket. (If you don't want to sew your pockets, its not necessary, double sided tape also works great and is REALLY easy.) Notice I like to use a zig zag stitch because it just pops off the paper a little more and is a lot more forgiving of my inability to sew a straight line.
14. Once your pages are sewn start gluing them in!!!!
