Book binding workshop

I went to a Book binding class at Make Horsham and had a great time making my first book! Make Horsham is a community non-profit organization who offers a range of workshops, in a local church. I especially love that they offered free cake and drinks, I think these extras make a workshop great šŸ™‚

Your books could either be covered with a map or you could bring your own paper. I pop into B&Q and grabbed some cute wallpaper samples to create the front cover of the book. I went for a lovely postcard wallpaper for the front cover and a purple striped paper for the inside.

Below are some photos of the books from the workshop!

    Wow! This is really nice. I like the map version because you can use specific locations & made create a journey story for each book! I like this

  4. Very pretty. What a wonderful hobby! I love a handmade journal.
    I see you sell on Etsy. How is that going? I tried Etsy but found the competition to be too much.
