How to do Japanese Stab Binding (simple)

Years ago, I consulted books. 3 books about Japanese Stab Bindings later, I was convinced there had to be a simpler way. I'm a college student, moving in and out every semester is traumatic enough without adding power tools, sewing bench, and book presses into the equation. So I simplified things.

I taught a workshop recently on Japanese Stab Bindings. I wrote up (I mean this literally) a sheet explaining my methods. I figured I might as well share it with the internet as well...
