That looks like 3/4″ to me? I get all my ribbon at Michaels in Canada. But I have heard lots of Americans using Hobby Lobby for stuff too. That looks like huge cardstock. The biggest I’ve ever seen is 12×12.

I think i’ve seen larger cardstock at Michaels (24″x12″).  If I were doing it I would just use 12″x12″ paper- it’s easier to find and cheaper.  (I would cut the sheets 4.5×12″)

You should be able to find a ribbon similar to that.  I would suggest checking out a JoAnnes if you have one near you.  I think they have a better selection of fabric ribbon (Michaels has a good selection as well, but their ribbon tends to be only a few brands, and those brands make more of the ‘typical’ ribbon, and not what is pictured.  Not sure what Hobby Lobby carries, but as they carry fabric they might have a better selection of a cotton ribbon than Michaels.  

I would get a regular whole punch and punch it to the center of the pages, at the fold.  This should be fine for getting the ribbon through.  

This looks like a pretty simple progect once you find your materials and get the basics figured out.  Good Luck!
