BUILDING THE PLAYBOOK:
There are several ways to build your book –
One: Plastic Key-rings
Two: Ribbon
Three: Can whip stitch the pages together with a thicker yarn (chunky)
Plastic key rings – approx 15 depending on the size (mine is 4 cm in diameter)

 Carefully insert each key ring through a SC starting from the last page and
working towards the first page. Space each key ring about 1 cm – 2 cm apart.
Depending on how many keys are needed 🙂 mine for this book is about 4 cm apart.
