"Craftophrenia"~ Dabbling in Everything!

I have never seen anything so cool! I do have an idea for attaching a jumpring. Could you try a jewelry pin- the kind with a flat end, and a ring on top: you see beads strung on them. (They come in various lengths, and can be cut-to fit). It could run the length of the spine and stay very flat, with the  flat end tucked in at the base under the
headband. you could actually hide it even, and have the looped end coming just above the top of the text box. then the jump-ring would be right at the edge of the cover, and free to move, with no hole in the book. I hope someone tries it... I've never made one of these before, but I will! K.

You know, come to think of it, why don't you just use the double -looped kind of jewelry pin, and take a stitch or two thru the lower end? It seems like it would lay better than the pin-ended one, and you can sew it in place... no slipping later! K

I finally got around to trying the eye-pin technique, and it works like a charm.  I just glued it into the spine with a dollop of modge podge and then attached the text block.  Worked wonderfully!

Gosh that worked out so well. I'd totally forgotten about it. I have some made without covers lying around from before... I must try this technique.

Your minibook is super cute, thank you for sharing! ♥
