I made these today! Each are 3.25 x 3.25 inches, hand bound with 60 pages of mixed papers and screen printed covers! It's my second time silk screening and I am really pleased with the results!

thank you so much for the kind words everyone! I have been interested in bookbinding for quite a while now, so I learned from various different sources and sort of cobbled my methods together. One of the books I learned from was "Creating Hand made books" By Alisa Golden. I recently had a look at "How to make books" by Esther K. Smith, and that is another pretty good book to check out. There are also some good tutorials on craftster, as well as on instructables.com!

The bindings are so neat and beautifully creased. 

I am also a big fan of the book you mentioned, "Creating Hand made books" By Alisa Golden. 

I used her tunnel book method for my Christmas card this year.  It's here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=220506.0
