To recess material on book covers, I cut out the shape of the recess from=
 a
piece of folder stock (or other thin stock, cut to the size of the binder=
's
board), adhere the stock to the binder's board as a laminate, and
supplement the other binder's board with the same thickness of material s=
o
they will be of equal dimension.

When making the cover, you can use a bone folder to adhere the cloth or
other covering material to the edges and back of the recessed area.  You
can also save the piece of stock removed from the design area of the
laminate, place it on the cloth over the recessed area you previously
created (while the adhesive is still wet), and put the cover in a press t=
o
obtain a precisely defined recess.  It is often necessary to trim or sand=

the recess piece if you want to use it as a pressing device because the
thickness of the covering material makes the recessed area smaller than t=
he
piece when it was initially removed.
