I recommend this tutorial to learn how to make a soft cover perfect bound book.
The tutorial shows you how to make a book with a recycled candy box, so you’ll have to figure out how to measure and make your cover.
I used cover stock paper for the cover and it was fine.
This book uses glue (no stitching), which means you can easily bind different papers into the book. Don’t use paper that is too heavy, the binding won’t hold as well. Regular weight paper is fine.
The glue is not difficult to use. If you are having trouble getting your pages to stay in your cover, try this tip for improving the binding strength.
