Start by cutting some regular printing Letter paper 7-inch height and scoring it in half. You can also include some patterned paper if you want!

Next, use your Book Binding Guide to make holes on all the inside pages and your leather. The Book Binding Guide it is great because it has a V shaped base so your pages don’t shift during the piercing process. Now you can have perfectly aligned pages every time!

Before putting together your notebook, use your Foil Quill Freestyle Pen to add a title or personalize it, I also added some leaves. If you feel confident with your drawing skills, you can draw free hand, but if you are like me, you can stamp your favorite desgin on the foil and then use the Foil Quill Freestyle Pen to trace the stamped image.
