Little red book by Swirlything Little red book by Swirlything
HA! Take that, Paperblanks and your flat-opening coptic-bound journals of expensive!

Finally figured out how to make these open-spine type books. (not proper coptic binding since I was making it up as I went along 8D) Which I actually found are easier to make since you only need a tiny bit of glue compared to my normal method. And they open flat so they're better to draw in!

Cover is some awesome handmade paper I found, pages are mixed paper- white plus three slightly different shades of cream. I'm pleased with this one, even if it didn't photo well.

Really cute! How did you make the cover? Did you glue the paper onto a harder surface?

Yes, it's textured paper glued onto thick card. I can't remember what kind of card it was for this particular book, but I normally reuse things like the backs of old notebooks/sketchbooks and packaging.

And thanks!

Really cool. You've inspired me to try and make one of my own. =) I found your process on another deviation!
