A New Book

Last Saturday I went to my second bookbinding course and I LOVED it. Tghere is just something really satisfying in being able to create your own book out of somepaper, card and some thread. This time we only used coptic binding for the book
The paper for covering the front and back cover are from K&Company and the small circles are punched from corrugated card. I used waxed linen thread for the binding ... and some beads for embellishment.
Each section inside the book, the signatures, are made up of some white paper and a black 'wrapper' paper
I also decorated the book a little bit with some 'Things with Wings', our current Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge which you can hopefully all join.
Have a great afternoon, Petra.
