Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

these are great! i especially love the last one you posted.  what type of cardboard do you use?  or where do you get it?  is it specifically made for book binding, or did you just cut up a cardboard box?  sorry for the silly questions, i've never done anything like this before.  Smiley

These are wonderful!  Great job!

I'd like to try it sometime, but I am really confused by the weight of the paper in the tutorial.  It says to use 60-70 lb weight paper, but I thought regular computer paper, which I see that you used, is about 20 lb weight?  Wouldn't 60-70 lb paper be more like cardstock?  It doesn't look like cardstock in the original tutorial.  Did you use more paper than the tutorial called for?  Thanks!

Thank u! I used some cardboard that my dh saved and brought home from work for me. It was a nice weight and smooth but that's all I really know about it. I tried using some from a box but didn't like using the corrugated kind. I've used the cardboard backing from art paper pads and that works well. I tried to find some cardboard but no luck so far.

Thank u! To be honest I guess I didn't see the weight about the paper on the tut and just used what I had which was printer paper and I used the same amount of pages the tut said and it worked out fine Smiley
