Bookbinding Coptic stitch

  • 5Steps


Create a made-by-you original book to use for nature journaling! Use your hands to make a beautiful, yet functional and simple book. Making something by hand stimulates creativity, and satisfaction of completing something yourself. You can keep this for your journaling or art practice, or give as a gift. You'll show off the stitching with this Open-spine version with coptic stitches. This book requires cutting paper, folding, poking holes, gluing paper to cover, stitching the pages and attaching the cover. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is fully customizable. After you learn the process you can modify it to fit your needs perfectly! You can modify: Cover material (fabric, hand-made paper, scrapbooking paper, etc) Cover Use thinner or thicker board, or repurpose a hard-cover from an old book!
