Bind Paper Into A Booklet With Just Some Clever Folds And Cuts

Making little notebooks has an endless supply of uses, whether it be for multi-page greeting cards or small scrapbooks. Here’s how to bind the pages together without the need for staples, clips, tape or glue, courtesy of DIY weblog Instructables.

All you need for this is some paper and a pair of scissors – useful if you find yourself in a bind with nothing else around (of course, even if you’re at home and have all the binding tools in the world, this is still a clever trick). The cutting involved is not difficult, either — it is akin to making heart-shaped valentines by folding a piece of paper in half (it is, however, very difficult to explain — luckily, both Instructables and craft weblog Bloomize have some very nice visual instructions with which you can follow along). If you have the craft arsenal, you could arm yourself with some pretty coloured cardstock and make a very clean-looking booklet — no staples, tape or glue to ruin it. Hit the link for the full instructions, and let us know your crafty glue-less tips in the comments!
