    Binding pages - help please.

    Just finished a project that I am insanely proud of, a knitted Domo Kun doll. I considered being greedy and evil and keeping him for myself as I am madly in love with him. Instead I am sending him on his way at the end of the week as a (belated) birthday gift.
    I took a ton of photos during the process, and many afterwards, I'd like to make a tiny book of his life to go with him. I have never made a book, and have no idea about binding pages.

    Any and all help would be appreciated!
    Thanks
    M

    How many pages will the book be? What kind of paper? What size? I would recommend a very simple binding. Fold the pages in half, punch two holes in the center, run a ribbon through and you're done!

    Sorry, I got side tracked while writing the original post and forgot to add details!
    Card stock - no more than 10 pages I would think.

    If I use the method you suggested, I think I might try and set up a clasp with a ribbon and button to hold them closed.
    I think this is becoming a much bigger thing than I had planned. hmmmm.
    Honestly I'm bad at this kind of thing....
    Knitting, I think I'm doing pretty darn well, but other crafty things I fail!

    I would recommend japanese book binding. it is so easy and classy-looking. here is a tutorial i found online: http://www.sff.net/people/Brook.West/bind/bindit.html
    and here is a photo of a book i bound in this manner. [took maybe five minutes to bind]
