Thank you Smiley

castleinthesky: My first coptic bound notebook was made of a beer package and some printer paper. I got the idea of the technique with it and then made some prettier ones. Now I'd love to get my hands on some beautiful glittery scrapbooking paper. (DH wants to point out that he thinks the beer package notebook is the prettiest I've made Roll Eyes)

Riechan: I love list making too. I used to write them on scraps of paper that I immediately lost. The notebooks are a lot better place for them.

Hahaha same as me Cheesy
Although now I have a large board where I can right stuff on.
I am a beginner in bookbinding, this seems easier than making a whole hardcover book.
I'll have to this for me ! (I am making books for other people but never made one for myself Cheesy)

Riechan: It's easier to make notebooks like this than to make hardcover books. I'd like to try to make a proper hardcover book though. Then I'd like to make my own illustrated book of fairy tales. And yesterday I got the idea of binding my own copy of Pride and Prejudice. Might be too thick and not so readable if I used the Jane Austen font for it Cheesy So I'm going to use a normal font and maybe use some fancy font on the chapter titles. My notebook of crafty things to do is filling rather rapidly...

mollybgood: paper lunch bags aren't much in use in Finland but the idea sounds interesting. Did you mean like this? Sugar or flour bags might make an interesting notebook.. It'd just take me years to collect enough to make one.
