For my first challenge project ever I made a two-sided book with a cute and a dark side. Black-and-white opposes the colorful and bright, and the pages intertwine in the middle. The book can be used both ways depending on your mood Wink



Here's the dark side:



And here's the bright side of the thing Wink
I made pink headbands especially for this project.

Thanks for the challenge, I had fun making this!

I agree, the construction on this is amazing! I didn't think anybody still made headbands for their books anymore! I like especially how the pages intertwine. Looks like you paid a lot of attention to detail!

It always makes me so happy to see people doing bookbinding work! Lovely job, and I completely agree with sweets about color and construction.  Smiley
