Another blank book.
I messed up the original covers, but had extra scrapbooking paper to use. Stab-bound with cream colored ribbon, and the paper consists of various neutral colored cardstock. Measures roughly 7.5" x 5.5".  Total cost of project was roughly $6 with lots of paper and supplies still to spare.

Giving this as a gift most likely on Christmas to my cousin's family to use a photo scrapbook of some sort.

*photos levelled in PS so that the book colors turned out almost exact

form of bookbinding where you basically stab holes and then bind through them. Smiley

It kind of looks like a wedding guest book.  I mainly think thats because of the ribbons though.  Isn't that hard to open and close with the ribbons?  I mean do they hold it so well?  OR do you have someelse there and the ribbons as show.  It could go either way I guess.

So pretty!  So, so pretty.  Can I ask two things--- first, what did you use to do the stabbing?  Because your holes look nice and neat and not like what my holes would look like if I started stabbing through book covers.  But the cover looks too thick to hole punch.  Which is the second question-- what's the cover made of?  It looks thicker and nicer than just cardstock.

Thanks!!
