Making books is easier than you might imagine. There are all sorts of binding techniques, ranging from extremely difficult to incredibly simple. Here are five bookbinding tutorials that may spark your interest. Give one a try! 

Don’t you love the look of this mini book? Its etched metal cover and leather spine give it such a rich look. Onyxnox posted a very comprehensive tutorial with lots of great instructions and photos for making this tiny treasure.

photog_in_plaid shared how to do  buttonhole binding. This book is made with no glue at all, just a lovely stitch that is shown in her tutorial.
Look at this colorful spine on this piano hinge bound book. madcrafter chose colorful papers for the pages of her journal. There’s no sewing in this binding technique; small painted dowels woven into the pages keep the book together.
Artistically designed her adventure book to hold ATCs, but it would also be great for journaling or displaying favorite photographs.
Perhaps the easiest binding method is folding paper to make a book. Phizzychick presented her tutorial for a folded paper book inside a book she made using the method described. So clever!
