I selected a variety of patterned papers, vellum, and a treasure envelope for the pages of my booklet. The papers were cut 6″ x 6″ to match my handmade paper cover.
I punched the cover, pages, and treasure envelope as shown in the following photo. This particular punch arrangement will be used when I bind the booklet.
As a part of the binding I coated a bamboo skewer with USArtQuest Duo Adhesive (a special adhesive that is tacky when dry) and gilded it with silver Gildenglitz.
To bind the booklet, lay the gilded skewer between the punched holes. Thread one end of the tulle from the front to the back through one of the bottom holes. Thread the other end from the front to the back, using the companion hole. This traps the gilded skewer between the cover and the tulle. Next, bring the ends of the tulle up from the back, each end through a different hold. Tie the tulle in place on top to the gilded skewer.
