Here's how to bind your own booklet with a lightning bolt stitch! Fun book for Harry Potter or The Flash fans ;) The book I made is 5-1/2" x 4-1/8" with 32 pages total (counting front and back). You can use the template below and adjust the measurements to make your book a different size if you'd like.
