Craft Book Challenge Week 15: Make a Book

I love books. I wanted to be a librarian when I was in third grade. By high school, I wanted to write.

While I love my ebook reader, I can never give up the paper–bound book. Paper books are beautiful and make reading tactile.

This week, I'd like to make myself a book. It's obviously on my crafty bucket list as I have at least five books on bookmaking.

I'm starting with Making Books and Journals, which is part of The Weekend Crafter series.

The tools don't look complicated: hole punch, needles, bone folder, and clamps. I have the heavy thread and paper. I may actually cross another obsession off my crafty list!

Have you been putting off trying one of your passions too?



  1. Hi Aimee, can't wait to see what you make. Yes I have the needles, the waxed linen thread all especially purchased with the intention of making a book! Have I done it yet? Noooooo! I keep watching video tutorials tho...I'm working myself up to it haha!

    1. Rona, I am right there with you. You would not believe the project supplies I have acquired for "someday."


Tell me what you think!
