How can I make a homemade book?

I want it to be cardboard like those little baby books. If anyone can send me a link of a how to, or give good instructions, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Well if you fold the cardboard around a book it will take the shape of the book. Then you can hot glue fabric to the cardboard. I'm not sure how you would get the paper in the book but i'm sure you'll bome up with someone.

    Help me?
