Hey there!

I've recently started crafting more, and have been working on my bookbinding!

This was one of the first pieces I made recently. It's a 1/4 bound petite journal/notebook with 24 blank, white-coloured pages (48 sides). It measures 14.8cm x 10.1cm (5 ¾” x 4"). Tweed green book cloth and high-quality 150gsm Kaisercraft paper.







Comments and Criticism welcome! Smiley

That is lovely, I am new to book binding and have all sorts of new supplies and instructional books. Can't wait to give journal making a shot.

this is so well done, your binding is very precise, that is something that I struggle with as I can be a little messy when glue is involved...love the colour choices and the owl paper

Thank you! Definitely give it a go; knowing that you've made it completely from scratch from a pile of supplies is such a lovely feeling. I took a three day course in London, but would love to stock up on a few books as inspiration! Smiley.

Thank you! I just fell in love with the Owl paper. I've had a real love for owls for a long time, and this paper just tug at my heart strings.

Hehe! Thanks! Smiley. I find the measuring stage the hardest. I know that to get the look i'm after I can't skip this step, but it is difficult when your doing the same measuring multiple times in one session! Smiley.

I love the paper <3.

Thank you Pam! Smiley. I found some left pieces of card left over from the Owl print and have to say a let out a little squeal! I made them up into passport sized notebooks today! I am going to hunt for some other Owl type prints I think! Smiley x
