I'm in the middle of trying this out but I used a cereal box as the cardboard and it doesn't seem to be thick enough to make a distinct shape under the paper towel. What sort of cardboard did you use for this? It doesn't say in his blog either, just that he used the back cover of a sketch pad... I ended up covering the design with puffy paint to make sure it will be high enough but... the edges are not crisp like a cut piece of cardboard. And it was a pain in the butt Cheesy!

I can't wait to get my hands on my hubby's OLD outdated "how to use the internet" books and mess them up!

I've done a similar technique for painting on canvas...I've used poster board, sometimes in layers, to get it in various thicknesses. I've used part of a shipping box. I've used shoe boxes. I've used foam core too. You can really use any kind of cardboard. If it's not thick enough, just glue several pieces together first.

Cardboard from the back of a sketch pad would be like the back of most notebooks, but it looks like the OP used corrugated cardboard from the tut on Urban Threads.  I just threw away a bunch of scrap mat board that would have been perfect for this, so obviously, I'm kicking myself right now.  Sad

Love the box, BTW!

Before you cut the inside of the book did you mod pog the pages?

This is very cool.  I love how the use of paper towels for making it look like leather.  I may have to steal this! (The idea, not your box).
