4. Fold the cover page in half and open it, fit in the white pages inside the cover.



5. Take needle and a thread of good color as it’ll be shown on the cover, secure the end of the thread with a knot.

Follow these steps:

1. Punch two wholes through the pages in centre( on the spine of book)

2. Take a ribbon of your choice and insert it through those holes from the inside.Notebook


3. Pull out the ribbon from the outer side and tie a big knot. Trim the excess ribbon. A big knot gives a very pretty look.Notebook
