Coptic Binding, Take One!

I’m doing a thing.

Remember last year when I made those clamshell boxes for my Fairy Tale Academy series?

You know, these things?

This year I’ve decided to learn another book making technique!

Coptic binding.

Nope, I didn’t know what it was either, but after a wonderful tutorial from the University of Utah’s Book Arts program, this is what I’ve been working on.

The front!
The inside.
I haven’t watched the video on how to put the back cover on yet, but I’m ready!

Who knew that you could do something so cool with what amounts to cardboard, fabric, paper, a needle, and thread?

Honestly, I’m pretty happy that it’s turning out so well!

Now the trick is to make sure the next one is as good or better than this one.

I hope you’re all finding something fun to do this fall. It could be a creative endeavor, a physical endeavor, an intellectual endeavor, or even finding the time to chill out and relax, because sometimes that’s an endeavor.
