Book Binding

I had been wanting to try book binding for a while. You know... I like learning new things and how cool is it to make your own book? I got together with my crafty friends Sara and Melodie who also wanted to make books.

It took several sessions. Turns out book binding is quite the process, at least the way we did it. It's a good thing I decided to do two books at the same time because I don't know if I ever want to make another book again. Unless I find an easier way to do it. Although I told John I would make him one.... mmmm we will see.

ANWYAY... I love the paper that I chose for my book covers. I also really like how Melodie and Sara's turned out as well.

Here is Melodie's that she made for her sign in book for her wedding.

And Sara's which I am sure she has sewn together by now :)

And my two that I made. I think my map one is extra awesome.

I sewed them the only way I could find a youtube video for. I may re-sew them AND I would actually like to put leather on the spine. I like that look. For now... they are done though. Yeah for learning something new!

You could make Halloween spell books! Do it! Your books are rad, and that is SO something I would like to do.
