Hello! Today I’ll show you how to make a book at home with a step by step video tutorial. So pull out your paper and glue and get ready to craft!
In today’s video I am making simple small books, that are super easy to make once you figure out the method I use! I use a regular stapler to quickly bind these books. So let me show you how to make a book at home today!
To make a book you’ll need: A glass cutting mat, some sheets of paper, a stapler, a dish towel, a bone folder, a retractable or exact knife, a ruler and a sheet of cardstock.
Below, I have tried to list all of the craft supplies I pulled out to create this project. Affiliate links have been used. Which means that if you make a purchase I might earn a small commission. This money helps run and maintain this blog, thank you!

To trim the book edge, I use a ruler and an utility knife. I’d never tried this method before and boy was I amazed at how neat the result is! I am addicted to this technique now- so easy and so satisfying! Again, see it in action in the video here.
The final books measure about 4.25 by 5.5 inches in size, they are called an A6 sized book. This size is a cute size for a journal or notebook and perfect to carry around in your purse.
