hi:) i'm newbie in bookbinding, i started learning it since my swap partner wants one, so here is my practice journal:





it is made for one very special person, and i know he will like it even if it's not so pefect. i'm quite proud, but i used some weird paper for cover (i got so addicted that i went to bookshop 5 minutes before closing just to get supplies:)), and glue ate color in few places, so i have put tag with lyrics over that white stain. Pages are not perfectly lined up, i need bit of practice. lyrics on cover say "dreams are worth most when they grew old together with you", something like that:) there are some kitty stickers and punched angels inside, but it's so simple that i would feel bad about putting tons of photos here:)

things i forgot to do:
put a bookmark, i had it ready and just forgot to stick it somewhere:(
bind one envelope together with pages, for keeping small papers and so, i always glue one to the end of my notebooks

That's really awesome for being a newbie!!  I LOVE the paper on the front--it's so pretty!  And good for you knowing what you can do better next time!  I need to get better about that one.  Wink
