Hand Bound Journal

As an experiment in book binding, I bound my own journal using a modified version of this tutorial. The content is from Best Self Co.’s free PDF version of their Self Journal.

Just as a heads up, this is not an efficient or cost-effective means of getting your own book — printing 200 pages of content, purchasing materials, and spending four hours learning how to do a saddle stitch should only be reserved for the obsessed.  That said, it was a fun project, and if you’re looking for a creative project to do with your hands, I’d highly recommend giving it a go.
