Simple Bookbinding for Journals


I am so excited to share today’s project!  What is it?  Well it is a handmade book in which I bound my own pages. 

Now you first question may be, why would you make your own book?  Well for starters, I can never find a book with the papers I like!  I like doing watercolor journaling, and I am very picky about my papers.  You can of course find hand bound journals on Etsy, but you are looking at very expensive prices, and no guarantee on the paper. So I finally decided to take matters in my own hands and start binding myself.
