|my first book(excuse my rough nail polish) made using a toilet tissue tube|
I used the tissue core to make this book, but one make others using the boxes from cereal and such.
First,I took the cardboard tube, and rubbed the interior with Elmer's glue, then pressed it flat under a stack of book or something flat and heavy. Once it was dry, I covered it,back and front, with fabric.
|cardboard for cover,fabric for outer and interior of cover|
|glue outer cover first,then the inner cover,barely overlapping the edge of the outer cover|
Once your little cover is completely dry,fold it perfectly in half, and make your little pages for the inside of your book using white paper,cutting it just the right size,when folded in half,to fit inside the cover.Use a tiny line of glue to secure the pages inside the cover.Hence, you have made an adorable little book.Just big enought to write a message inside, and attach it to a gift for someone special.You can use your imagination to embelish it more,if you wish.
