the first thing to do



so here we go. find a book, a hardcover is desirable since its sturdy, can be old or new as long as you no longer needed it for reading. for my altered book note holder, i used a paperback novel; that’s the only one i find available and can fit in my unkempt work table. and it’s a 400-page fantasy novel i bought two years ago at a bouquiniste store.

paper folding time!

the next thing that you are going to do is simply fold each page in half. fold as many pages as you desire. and you are finished. to hold notes, simply insert them between the folded pages. piece of cake, kiddo. ;)
