I've been lurking at craftster for like ages, but I never really posted
Anyway, I followed this tutorial -->http://personal.mem.bellsouth.net/d/r/drv1913/0204pg1.html
and I've made a journal! The only thing is, something is wrong, and I really don't know what to do. The tutorials never seem to come across this problem, so I thought maybe I did something wrong in the process!
From this picture, the book can only open up to this much! I could force it some more but that would just tear the paper I glued to the covers.
Here are more pictures of the problem:
I asked my mom about it and she said I wasn't supposed to glue the spine to the side of the papers. But would that be able to hold?
I also have another problem: I used black satin-like fabric as the cover and I used a medium sized paintbrush to spread glue over the covers and laid the black cloth over it. It kinda looks awful! Should I use thicker cloth (it was kinda thin), not use glue at all on the covers but only on the inside or use less glue?
I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out! I'm like an uber noob
