Finished binding of the Wallpaper Covered Journal


This is Part 4 of 4 on How to Make a Wallpaper Covered Journal

This part of the process takes about 30 minutes

Your journal cover and papers are ready. Time to put it all together!


Art and Craft Supplies

Thread
Needle
Scissors


Method

Binding pages to the journal


Line the signature up with an end row of holes on the spine. Holding the signature open, pass the thread through the corresponding centre holes of the signature and the spine. (Needle is now outside the journal)


Hold the end thread with your thumb inside the signature and pass the thread through one of the other corresponding holes (through signature and spine). Needle is now inside the signature)

Pass the thread through the remaining corresponding holes. (Needle is now outside the journal). Apply some pressure to keep thread taut and pages together

Sewing signature and binding to spine of journal


Pass the thread back through the corresponding centre holes. (Needle is now inside the signature)

Take the needle off the thread, make sure thread ends lie either side of the binding stitch


Make a square knot. (Knot first with left side thread, then knot again with right side thread or vice versa)

Trim ends

Complete sewn signature


Attach the other six signatures in the same way


Other

You can start threading from the outer side of the signature if you wish - the knot will be hidden by the spine of the book

You can hold the sides of the signature with bulldog clips to keep the pages together while sewing

Your journal is ready to go!


Well done! ... Now get writing / drawing / painting / sticking... or all of it!

Have fun! :)
