my first handmade book

I am trying out some new crafting these days and have decided to try and make a few books for family members.
This is my first attempt and I thought it came out pretty good.

I used three sheets of nice drawing paper, a decorated scrapbook page that I cut to size and glued with adhesive. Then I bound it by making holes with an awl and then sewing with embroidery thread. Finally I added embellishments on the front, spelling out the recipients name. A very simple and quick gift but hopefully something that is useful.


  1. How lovely.

    This weekend I actually sat down to create a little list of handmades for Christmas and handmade notebooks are on the list. Thanks for sharing how you made yours.
