Artemis,

Used Manila folders are great  for 'soft cover' books. (Most offices are
happy to give their old ones away as they update. (The ones that can't be
used as covers (shabby) can be used as paste out scrap when doing collage.)
A stack of donated computer paper, a Manila folder cut to make a back and
front cover. Pick two even places to punch holes. Cut two pieces of string,
raffia etc. about 10" long. Thread one piece through one hole and tie at the
edge. do the same with the other thread in the second hole and tie at the
edge. Gather all four pieces together and tie an overhand knot. A great
inexpensive soft cover book. Decorate the Manila cover with collage. Paste a
piece of Manila folder on the inside cover as a pocket for their Ephemera .
