Bookbinding

I enjoy bookbinding. I have only made a few. None which are that great yet, but I will hopefully get there. I use this Site for my bookbinding instructions. I usually use thickish cardboard but I would love proper bookbinding board or chipboard. Anyway, I also use those small, thin artist canvases as my cover pages.
Here are the main products I use. The paper in the pic is the paper I will be using for my next attempt. I want to make heaps more soon. Especially when I get some chipboard and bookbinding board. The canvas pictured here aren't the ones I use but I can't really find the ones I have. When I have finised my journal I will post a picture.

This seller Stacyhandmade from Etsy has some cute little handbound journals.
This is one of her sweet little journals.

Etsy is a fantastic site for all handmade goods. There are so many different things on here. In time I would love to have an etsy store as well. I just need to make quite a few things before I start selling.

Also I have found this interesting idea from Martha Stewart.

I love this idea. I thought it would be great to make your own journals and use this idea to present to someone. I'm all about presentation. Especially with presents.
