2. Cut around the book pages. Do not cut apart the cover and back page of the book, pages 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, etc.

3. Fold the cover page and all the other pages in half so that the print is showing. Stick pages 1 and 2 inside the cover page so that the folded edge of the pages is facing out. Do this for all of the pages, putting them in order as you go. The folded edge of the cover should be on the left and the folded edges of the other pages should be on the right when assembled.

4. Staple the pages together along the folded edge of the cover.
