A fellow blogger left a comment about the Love Book binding...
Blogger Domenico said...
I'm so dense. How did you bind the book? I see the holes on the spine, and I see the holes on the file folders, I'm confused how to thread the ribbon. You've been so kind already I hate to bother you but I want my book to look as good as yours. Hopeless in California.

Domenico, I think I just left out the picture you needed to see!  Sorry about that.
I punched holes in the portfolio for the ribbon like this.
 Then I laid the file folder on top of the holes on the right side, made a pencil mark so my holes would line up and then punched the file folder. Once the portfolio was complete I laid all three file folders into the portfolio and threaded ribbon through the holes, tying on the outside. 
Hope that helps!


  1. Hello!
    I love your blog!
    I made your Valentines fortune cookies for my shop this weekend, filled them with different giveaways and percent off deals. My customers loved them, I got a lot of compliments and directed them toward my blog which has a link to yours.
    Thanks again.

  2. Thank you so much... dense right? I probably should have figured that out, but I was too busy absorbing all the crafty goodness. I forgot to menition what a great project this is. If the guys ever heard me say this I'd suffer for sure, its gorgeous!! Thank you again for helping a guy out.
