I'm so pleased with how this turned out, I've loved working on it! Grin I've been creating my own journals in this style for years, and I finally made a finished mini-book art piece. It even has pullout bits!

Whole thing:


Cover:


A couple of the pages:




And all the inserts together!

Thank you everyone! Grin

WOW! This book is fabulous. Can you explain more clearly how it is bound?

It's in 2 parts, there are the pages, which are all longer on the right and have tabs so they can be folded over and glued to hold the inserts. These are sewn together in the middle. And the cover, which is folded over at both sides to hold the pages, with the same tabs. Slits at the edges of the cover mean that the ribbon goes all the way through on the inside. Hope that makes sense? I can draw a diagram/template if that's of any use?
