Go to Roberts or Hobby Lobby and buy a inexpensive BIG drawing pad. I used a forty % off at Roberts and paid 3.50$. Then go to your local copy store and ask them to cut the book in half length wise and then again in half width wise. Then ask them to use their drill for hole punching on the sides. I paid 3.00$ total at the copy store. Then you can modge podge or glue your scrapbook paper to the covers. One drawing pad should make one fat journal or two good size journals. Use the back cardboard on the drawing pad for your front and back covers. Then bind your book together with ribbon or jute in the drilled holes.
