Craft Friday: A Book Project


As some of you know I have a bookbinding hobby. I’m not particularly good at it, but I enjoy it the same. I finally finished one project because I found a nice stopping point for me, which is why I don’t have the tutorial for today ready (it will hopefully be up next week). In the meantime here are some photos of my completed project.

As you can see, I keep screwing up the spine cover. I’ll eventually get the hang of it…




I also did a horrible job of trimming the paper this time around. Luckily I know what I did (I glued it down before sizing it). This is what happens when you cut corners.




Despite my errors I do enjoy my work on the cover.




A couple of people wanted to see the results of my work, and this is it.  When I get decent enough at it perhaps I’ll post a tutorial for bookbinding so others can try it too.

  1. Cute! What’s the image on the front? (I’m a neophyte when it comes to Kemet)

    • Thank you 😀 It’s an image of Het-Hert as the Celestial Cow upheld by Shu (to keep it simple He’s a god of dry air). I based it off a spell from The Book of the Heavenly Cow.
