Weekend Worktable

I'm working on a very large book for a custom order. At 8.5 x 11", it's the largest book I've used a coptic binding with. To make it secure, I'm using multiple rows of stitching. It's one of my Rebound Journals, using covers from an old unwanted book, and with such a great title!

Also, my Peace Poppies Journal is in the TransCanada Etsy Team's November Challenge: Red for Remembrance. Stop over at the team blog and vote for your favourite item.


  1. Hello,

    I've been collecting old books for the covers and am hoping to repurpose them as new journals.

    Can you tell me what tool you used to punch the lovely holes in the cover?



  2. Vicki, an awl is the tool you need to punch holes in bookboard.
