A multifunctional gift
Japanese stab binding, with decorative paper. Trying to use up the last of the lokta from the concertina project. It was bound using waxed linen thread. It's 8.5"x5.5" because the inside is just normal half sheets!
This sketch/note book features handmade end papers, and canson inserts. There are 20 blank sheets and 15 lined sheets that alternate in 5 page signatures.
I added small embellishments on the outside like this corner grommet.
I ended this stab binding in the front, and finished it with a copper button from Beadniks at the Mall of America. They have several locations in the US, the stores are charming and the staff is very friendly. Check them out if you have the opportunity.
