As I have recently had a lot of time to be creative over winter break from school, I thought I would try learning a bit more about bookbinding. I found a video online explaining how to do the coptic stitch and I just had to try for myself. The covers are made of illustration board covered in a map of London I found at a used book store.

Ooooo Pretty! How daunting was it? I've thought about making a journal but the thought scares me a bit... I'm such a wimp.

It was actually not as hard as I thought it was going to be. And not as time consuming either. I don't have a paper cutter which meant I had to cut all the signatures to size with a utility knife and a ruler, but it worked out fine. Plus the coptic stitch is really easy to use and, I think, looks really nice. You should definitely give it a try.

I agree with Trixie, really want to try but it seems like so much work if it doesn't come out just right. These are gorgeous though and as a Brit I do love the London maps  Grin
