Yay for this tutorial!  I just bought this old catholic school book called "Jesus Comes" with an old metallic 50's drawing of a boy and a girl getting communion.  I thought, this would make a great sketchbook and lo and behold.....a tutorial.  YAY!  I've already taken it apart, so now I just need to follow your great instructions.

Hey I love this idea!! My mum used to be a garage sale whore and so we have HEAPS of old books lying around the place Smiley

I was just wondering.. Would plain stitching and paper instead of the ribbon work for this? Because I'm poor and incredibly unable to understand coptic stitch..  Sad

this is a really neat idea, and it was a great tutorial - very easy to understand. good job!

i think that i'm going to make one of these for my friend.. she could use a new sketch book, and this would be right up her alley. the only problem - what book to use Cheesy


thanks for the cool idea

Oh, that is so cool!  I've never been a big fan of cutting books apart, but I really have to try this one.  Thanks for sharing the wonderful tutorial.
