Step 5 – Yuck! Notice the cover page is not even and square? Don’t worry—this will happen with all the layers of folding. On the cover page, trim the excess edges that are uneven.
Step 6 – Cut a coordinating 5 x 6 inch piece of paper. Fold in half and slip over the open edge. Glue down and you have covered up your crooked edges. Repeat same trimming technique for page 3 of your booklet (you can use any size of trim; in my example I wanted a 1 inch trimmed edge so I used a 2 x 6 inch piece).
Step 7 – Glue the bottom of the pages together so that these pages can be pockets to hold extra tags, photos, gift cards, etc..
Step 8 – You’ve just completed the booklet! Have fun decorating adding your personal photos and messages.
