Fashion Forward Birthday Book

Hi Crafters, we're delighted to be sharing how to make an amazing Fashion Forward Birthday Book with you.

Go around the large pieces on three sides with the black construction tape and each end on the short edges of the spine. Place the spine and the front or back together (the unbound edges) and place a piece of tape half on and half off of the spine, make sure that these two pieces are lined up and the tape is a couple of inches longer at each end.

Place onto a flat surface and open these up you will see that there is a gap between the two pieces, this allows you cover to open and close easily. Pull the excess tape at the top and bottom onto the inside of the cover. Pl…
