A handmade book is a lovely gift, for say, a wedding or a birthday. These books are quite personal, so make them tailored to fit the person you are giving.

These simple steps will ensure that the book turns out perfect.

• Choose the material for the cover and cut out two identical pieces.

• Cardboard is the preferred material to work with since it is not too complicated.

• Fold six sheets of paper in half. Then, sew them together at the fold in a figure 8 pattern.

• Begin and end at the same place, and the knot faces inside, which will create the spine.

• Put these six-sheet stacks on top of one another and see to it that they are accurately aligned.

• Cut out a piece of material.

• It must be as long as the pages and 2 cm wider than the back bone.

• Paint one side of the fabric with glue.

• Glue the cardboard sections to the first and last pages.

• Cut another strip of fabric.

• Attach these to the spine on top of the cardboard and press them into the first piece of fabric.

• After it dries, cut out a piece of decorative paper. It should be two inches wider than both of the covers and the spine.

• Make a crease on the decorative paper.

• Cut two sheets of paper.

• Glue it to the interior of the cover so that it covers what the cover doesn’t.
