About This Class

In my first Skillshare class, Create Your Own Journal: Repurpose a Vintage Book, I showed you how to re-purpose the cover of a vintage book to house your own custom made journal.

In this companion class I show you how to make your own professional looking hardcover from scratch, using book board and your choice of cover paper. 

Once your hardcover is complete, review the lessons in 'Create Your Own Journal' to finish binding your new hardcover journal.
