Some fellow vendors at Staple! gave me some tips on DIY book binding.So I made a Shiner Book for my first attempt.Half the pages are blank and the other half is notebook paper.The edges are a little rough as I’m still getting used to the paper cutter, but all in all I think it’s a neat little book.
