Go the Scenic Route Coptic Book

Saturday, August 22, 2020

With every collection I love to create a coptic book and here is the Go the Scenic Route edition!
I love making these handmade coptic books and giving them away as gifts. You can use them as diaries, "smash books" or art journals, daily gratitude journals, wedding sign-in books, mother-to-be baby shower books, as a scrapbook, making lists, for instax photos, book reviews, and so much more! I even made my December Daily 2017 in one and I think it's my most favorite December Daily to date :)
 My absolute favorite part is the exposed binding and tying charms, enamel dots, stickers, pearls, beads, buttons, sequins, & more into the binding as I'm sewing. The book lays flat when opened which makes it easy to write & "art" in.
 This book is 4x6" which is perfect for full-sized photos and smaller memorabilia.
 The covers are made from painted wood that my dad and I cut and sanded together - sandpaper is included in the kit so you can sand it to your liking.
 I decorated the cover with paint to match one of the patterned papers in Go the Scenic Route and then added a smattering of Floral Die Cuts and Enamel Dots - both of which are included in the kit.
Check out all the previous coptic books made with my collections:

There's nothing quite like the feeling of making a cute book completely from scratch!!


  1. I always always always LOVE these books you make!!! They are SO GORGEOUS!!! I am LOVING the flowers on the front of this one!! You inspire me!!!!!!

  2. These are a work of art really and I can't believe I'll have one too! After seeing all the covers, I have a rainbow of ideas floating in my head but how to choose? I already have a bowl of tchotchkes started for the spine 😀😍

  3. Oh my goodness this is AWESOME! I love them all. I don’t see a kit in your Etsy shop but do see the tutorial!! And the book covers. Does your tutorial class provide recommended materials to gather?

  4. I would love to make one of these but can't find the kits anywhere!!! Help!!! Hope they are still available!!!
