My first handbound book made with this tutorial, I used fabric for the outside which was a little tricky but it looks good doesn't it? The bookmark is black/grey ribbon. This one was made for a swap.
And my second one, also made for a swap. This time I used paper for the cover but it was really thin paper so instead of smearing glue all over the cardboard for the cover, I used double side tape. It worked good ^^
I also crocheted the bookmark.
