Here's my first book made of book board, cardstock, japanese washi paper, a ribbon, and glue.  I'm very proud of it and enjoyed making it.  I'm hooked!

The book is 3 x 3.  

I really enjoyed this process and am considering getting serious about bookbinding so I can also make and sell these in addition to my flower hair accessories.

Here's another one, except with this one, I tied the bow towards the back of the spine, just to see what it would be like.......

Very well done.  What technique did you use to bind them?

I don't know much about washi paper.  I just know that it's what I used...hee, hee.  Except I don't think the pretty paper I used on the second books is washi.

Anyway, here is a link I found with information about its history:

Oh, I forgot to answer Sugar Queen.

I just used regular Tacky Glue and double stick tape.  But I found that there is a glue called PVA that is used for bookbinding, so I think I'm going to buy a jar.

They are beautiful! All of your stuff is gorgeous, though! Smiley
I have 2 big pieces of washi paper...I haven't been able to think of what I want to do with them...this is a good idea! Smiley

You just bound it with glue?  No thread to put the signatures together?
