Notes & Materials:
-instead of 6“ x 9“ x .5", I decided to make mine 6“ x 11“ x 1.25"
-I did not have a large enough piece of 80 lb paper so I just recycled pieces of cereal box cardboard and sewed each piece in at a time so the cover would still be easy to fold. The thicker layer made it more difficult to free-motion stitch...I broke a machine needle but then replaced it with a denim needle and that seemed to help.
-I left the flap empty (no cardboard) to allow it to accommodate expansion in the signature pages
