Cut 4-by-7-inch paper covers with knife on mat, using ruler as a guide.
Cut out slightly smaller pages from old or photocopied books, and fold them in half.
Place paper cover on scoring board. With ruler as a guide, use bone folder to score 2 sets of 2 lines down center of paper for a 1/2-inch-wide spine, with the 2 lines in each set spaced 1/8 inch apart. Fold along the 2 inner scores.
Apply a thin line of glue to spine. Press folded pages onto glue, hold in place for a few seconds, and let dry.
