Using a food packaging box can be a quick way to create a cover for a book. The thin cardboard is easy to work with. The folds of the box will dictate the size of your covers and spine. Just cut the inside pages to fit in the cover and you are good to go.
Carolyn Dube's fun designs for the June Stencil Club stencils were great for creating a variety of visual textures on my painted papers. These were perfect for the cover of my book.
I used the super simple 3-hole pamphlet stitch to attach the seven signatures into this little chunky book.
