Book binding is a great way to add your personality and craftsmanship into a book or journal. It can be used to improve the presentation of your work or increase your connection with a personal journal.

This method teaches you how to make a book out of paper that has already been used on one side, however the technique could easily be adapted to use new paper. Binding your own book is not as hard as you think, follow these book binding steps and you'll be well on your way to creating your own special book.
