Below are pictures of the pages before making into a book.
















I joined two pages together right side facing, stitched around three sides, turned right side out, then stitched together the remaining open end. 
 I used a bookbinding method to join the pages, then added a cover. I didn't photograph the pages joining the cover as it wasn't that good.
