I love love LOVE making my own books. I use everything from recycled hardcovers to cardboard and cardstock for the covers, and then customize my inside papers by either journalling on them, sewing on them, assembling pretty or funky papers together, or making them more "useful" like in my 2012 planner.
I've been asked so many times how to stitch a book together.
It's actually really easy!
I've made a tutorial for you to learn from :) Let me know if you have questions or comments!
Enjoy the show !
