Can I really bind my own? YES, YES, YES!!!

Thanks to this Skillshare class, I was inspired to bind my own books, which I'd been wanting to do oh-so-many-years! I'm sharing my first two bookbinds. It was a lot of fun and so fulfilling especially for a journal-lover like me. Thank you Samantha for teaching this class <3.

FIRST BOOK

I gave my first bookbind to my beloved husband. He loves it, but he cutely covets the further iterations.

I used a mix of grid and plain paper. I tore the edges to give a natural deckled look.
