Then embellish the pages with glitter, ribbon, rick rack, millinery flowers, 3-d hats, tags, etc. Make sure you leave a 1inch margin on the left side for binding and you sign the back page with your name and info, try not to leave that side to bare.

I will make the covers, inside covers and do the binding for this book collaboration.
