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.

Lovely class & neat project ideas. I've been wanting to learn this binding method. Can't wait to get started!

Great tip on covering the corners with PVA when using paper! I've only ever made books using fabric so this will be helpful. Can't wait to see your sewn binding class. I'll post a project hopefully by weeks end :)
Hi, I'm Samantha, an artist from New Zealand.
I have been drawing, painting, and making craft projects for as long as I remember.
I'm very happy to be a part of the Skillshare community. Not only can I share what I've learned, but I get to learn from others, too.
