12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help with making a softcover blank booklet. on: January 09, 2012 04:58:54 PM

I have been stupidly struggling to make my own moleskine-like book for the last couple months. I use a single signature (14 pages of regular copy-weight) with a paper covered cardstock cover and either sew it from top to bottom or phamplet stich it. Then I glue a strip of paper backed book cloth to the spine and press. What always happens is that the book will NOT lie closed 100% flat. Because the structure is so simple I cannot figure out why this is happening.
I fold with the grain of the paper, I crease tightly, I try to make sure that my thread is thin enough, then I bang my head against the wall in irritation.

If you find yourself getting more interested in papercrafting, I would reccomend taking a look at Accucut products. I have a grandmark die cutting machine and I absolutely love it. I can cut with large dies and go through several sheets of paper at once.  This machine is very large (about 1.5' x 2.75') and heavy duty. You do need to have separate dies for each shape you want to make.  It does not use an automated cutter.

Just my $.02! Good luck on finding a good machine for you.

Cool! The table on which it currently sits on might work. Thanks!

I have an Elna, old school machine. I want to put it in a cabinet so I can have a nice smooth and flat work surface. Has anyone put a machine not designed for a cabinet in one? Or tweaked a table to hold a machine?


18  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Lily table Loom? on: August 07, 2008 10:10:10 PM
Hello all!

Quite new here and hoping to find some experienced folks to help me out. I bought a Lily Loom (or at least s ome parts of one) at a thriftshop.) Ive found an image online of it but it's not threaded and is a bit unclear.

Anyone know where I can find more info on Lily Looms. (made in North Carolina)\
