Both if you have thembrush to apply glue solutionpencil/penruler, or other rigid straight edgeSelect a page that you want to be the first one cut out, and save that page to be cut out at the end.

Mix a solution of white glue and water. Holding the remaining pages together, brush the edges with the glue solution - enough to soak in pretty well, but not too drippy.
