...a gift for a friend
♥It's been a while since I used the Coptic book binding method. Since that's how I plan to bind my niece's wedding guest book, I wanted to do a practice run first. I reviewed this video on YouTube as a reminder, and then I put together this little book (4" x 5") for a co-worker of mine who is leaving next month.
All the materials I used for this book were things I already had on hand. I used mostly scraps from my niece's book - left over book board and scraps of linen paper for the signatures/pages. The diamond paper is some that I've had for a few years now - handmade in India that I purchased at a paper store here in Arizona that is now closed.
It's been a while since I did any kind of book binding, and making this little book made me realize how much I miss it. There will be more handmade books in my future!
