Hi!
This is my first post, though I have been on the site for quite a long time... I just made a Final fantasy journal for my bf who loves final fantasy  Cheesy
It is reconstructed because the only thing I bought specially for this proyect was glue! lol
The cover is made with some cardboard from a clothing-store bag, it is covered with wallpaper that i had lying around and I glued the red mage to the front and the black mage to the back!

Please comment!

The front of the journal with the red mage (please ignore my hair on the corner  Tongue)


On the first page I added a quote from final fantasy V


Here you can see the bookmark and that the pages are sewn.


...and here's the back with the black mage

Oh how awesome!!!

How did you make this? Just use the card board as a cover, blank white pages, and sew it like where staplers might go?

Did that make sense?

ANyways, it's awesome and I love it.

Thank you!

Yes, actually, I just cut the cover in cardboard (front, back and backbone) then folded all the A4 papers in half (the notebook has around 80 pages!) and sewed them in groups of 5 A4 papers (10 pages). After I had all the signatures sewn I bound everything together. Hope that helps!

How did you do the final binding of all the groups?
(I've never done it before but I'm interested.)
My fiance would adore this little book! He plays the FFXI onlind game and takes all kinds of notes for it.

Twistedtruth

there are many many ways to bind a book....I kind of made it up as I went along because i don't know how to bind books properly. There's no right or wrong way, but here a list of useful tutorials so you can choose one with which you feel comfortable! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=174813.0
