A blank page is no empty space. It is brimming with potential... it is a masterpiece in waiting -- yours
// A. A. Patawaran
Ah, there is something about making something with ones own hands, that is very relaxing and therapeutic. Especially simple things. Like a booklet that came together from a piece of cardboard from who-knows-what, a watercolor painting of a feather, and paper given to you by your grandmother years ago.
supplies: piece of cardboard, paper, stylus, ruler, scissors, stapler, artwork or something to embellish the cover
Take the cardboard you'll be using as your booklet cover and mark the center. Run a stylus along the ruler to make the cardboard easier to bend.
Cut out pages that are slightly smaller than your booklet cover. Each piece of paper will be folded in half, so if you want twenty pages you would cut ten pieces of paper.
Lay the pages on the cover and staple into place along the center.
Now enjoy your little book: give it to someone special or keep it for yourself. A book that you have made will become more a part of you than one you could buy. Fill it with thoughts, designs, dreams, sketches. Make it your own.
