Handmade Tuesday : DIY cardboard book

I have recently become obsessed with making my own book. I like the rustic and handmade feel of it. You can buy books and scrapbooks anywhere,but to make your own and have so many more options such as binding and size of book. It was really not hard,but a lot of prep work is needed. The cutting up cereal box takes some time.

What need:
Cardboard ( I used cereal box)
Binder rings ( found at Micheal’s)
Scrapbook paper 
Mod Podge
Brush / foam brush
Hole punch
Next step decide on the size you want your book and cut apart cereal box to the size you choose. Decide how many pages you want I did four pages all together. Take Mod Podge and glue the scrapbook paper on both sides. Let it dry and hole punch two or three depending on what you want. I did three holes and open the binder ring and put each page on it. Then you have a cute book.
