Button Hole Book Binding part 2

Hi everyone,

I made another book yesterday with the book binding skills learned from the workshop I attended on Wednesday on button hole book binding..

For this one I used a 12 x12 chalk board effect paper stack that I bought from the range for £3 and some black and white washi tape I bought from Ikea a while back.

I am really enjoying making books just now, although I have a few projects in the pipeline that I am working on which I will share in the coming weeks..

Button hole book binding

Hi everyone…

I have a couple of cute little handmade books to share with you…. I attended a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh this afternoon on button hole book binding with Cass Barron and it was such a fab workshop, if you ever get a chance to take a class with Cass jump at the chance as you will not be disappointed here is a link to her Facebook Page 😊

We finished our first books with some spare time left over so we got to start making another book, which I completed once I got home

Leather Travel Journal

Hi Everyone!..

I bought a 3 pack of nice notepads at my local supermarket (asda) this morning because I wanted to make a travel journal… I had bought a leather bundle off Amazon about a month ago with this project in mind and also for making a few other upcoming projects too 🙂

I love how it turned out.. the leather was a scrap but was big enough to cover the 3 books which were held in place with elastic hair bands and have enough to have a flap to fold over the front, which i didn’t trim and left it in the shape it was..

I have to say I do love it, but want to make another, this time actually stitching it onto the leather cover rather than with the elastic as I think I would prefer it to be more secure..

I think I will make up my own signatures for the next book too.. that should be fun and I have just the right paper in mind for it too 🙂

I was going to keep this blog post for tomorrow, but I was that excited about making it that I just had to share it with you tonight!

Thanks for popping in
