The zip file has 2 svg’s. The first one has the notebook template that will provide a bit of overhang on the paper inside. This one is 5.6 inches high, so stacking them to maximize the cut area isn’t possible, and you can only cut 7 notebook covers on a single sheet of plywood. The second file, has 8 covers, but the height is ~5.4", so you will get a cover that is a tad bit shy of a half of sheet of paper in height. So, you can cut the paper for the inside shorter, or have a cover that isn’t quite as tall as the paper inside. Choose wisely. Add your design to a new layer, and you’re ready to go. These use 9/16" - 3:1 pitch bindings, and having a binding machine makes things much easier, but not required.
