So the website is: http://personal.mem.bellsouth.net/d/r/drv1913/0204.html

I have been wanting to make a coptic bound journal so badly since seeing all of them on craftster but all the tutorials for the coptic stitch looked so complicated and difficult.  The tutorial at this website is the easiest I've found by far.  You shouldn't need any new materials, all the ones used for this journal are things you can find around your house.  As for the "cardboard", the backing of pads of paper are perfect.  Anyway here is the one I made.  I'm telling you it was so easy, it took a while for the first one, but it was easy nonetheless.  Everyone I love is getting a journal for the holidays.



PEACE

Jessy

Wow, that journal is really cool! I've always wanted to do a coptic stitch journal too, but can't figure out the stitching part, so thanks for that site too!!  Grin

I don't think that would be Kosher...  I can e-mail the "owner" of the site though and see if it's possible considering the situation.  Or maybe I can entice her to post her tutorial on Craftster... I'll let you know.  For now I would just try again...

great... can't wait to see it.  Hey if you can, look at the website I gave in the first post.  Her "stitch-by-numbers" method of coptic stitch is great.

Gah, thank you so much for that! I lost all of my bookmarks a month and a half ago and have been searching high and low for that website. Thank you again!

Anyway, awesome job on your book, I love it!

Well, Ican't get the website to pull up right now, but I think I have an idea of what you're talking about!!!!

Here is a journal I made:

I made it a while back for the circle journal swap I'm hosting here on Craftster.  I painted the cover paper myself (white 80lb. artist paper painted streaky black on purpose with a maple leaf stamp in copper ink).  Anyway, I didn't take pictures of the endpapers, but it's the same as the cover paper.
