You'll need 3 sheets of cardstock 12x12 inch
one sheet of patterned paper (I've used one of my favorite cosmo Cricket papers from the "material girl"-line )
waxed linen thread or embrodery tread (i used both)
Cut the 3 sheets of neutral cardstock in 12 x 6 inch size and fold all the pages in half.
add two 6x6 inch pieces of paper to the inside of the cover.
Gather all the neutral pages inside the cover.
make 2 holes trough all the pages in the folded edge.
I used my needle to make holes.
(I have used double embrodery floss pluss one waxed linen tread) You'll now add the buttons to the thread on the outside of the cover.
put one thread trough each of the holes in the button and tie a knot and a sweet little bow on top.
I added some beads to the waxed linen tread.
The book is ready to use!
