- Fold a few pieces of the plain white paper in half to make the book's pages.
- Take a piece of large construction paper and fold it in half over the white paper.
- Make sure all the folded ends meet. Using the hole punch, punch three holes along the edge.
- Using safety scissors, cut three pieces of yarn or ribbon to tie through each hole. Tie each piece into a bow along the book's spine.
