Wonders Coptic Book & Kits

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

With every scrapbook collection I love to create a coptic book and here is the Wonders edition!

I love making these handmade coptic books and giving them away as gifts and to look pretty on my shelf :) 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 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, beads, stickers, pearls tassels, buttons, sequins, and 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.

These covers are made from wood that my dad cut and I drilled lots and lots of holes through to show off the exposed binding. (Sandpaper is included in the kit so you can sand it to your liking.)

I tried something new for this book and sewed with 2 colors of thread - for the first half I used a pink and an orange then for the second half I used an aqua and blue.

The holes were actually way too close together and I had a really hard time stitching it, but I persevered and love how it turned out!

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

Check out all the previous coptic books made with my collections:

Go the Scenic Route coptic book // Bloom Street coptic book // Truly Grateful coptic book // Horizon coptic book // Whimsical coptic book // Pick-Me-Up coptic book // Turn the Page coptic book // Oh My Heart coptic book // Take Me Away coptic book // Fancy Free coptic book

I have a limited number of Wonders coptic bookbinding kits available in my Etsy shop!

Sometimes bookbinding supplies, especially wooden boards, can be hard to find and even harder to cut down to size and drill holes without power tools. Take the stress and hassle away with this custom coptic bookbinding kit! Included in this kit:
- one pair of 4x6" wooden covers with the holes already drilled and ready to be painted (a piece of sandpaper is included as well)
- 24 double-sided patterned papers trimmed to size
- piercing / drilling template
- 2 skeins of coordinating thread (color may vary from photo)
- curved needle
- package of puffy stickers (60 stickers - adhere back-to-back and punch a tiny hole through them to turn them into custom charms!)
- 8-page sticker book (286 stickers)
- 3 clear jewel beads
- 21 beads
- 1 acrylic butterfly charm (color may vary from photo)
- 2 metal flower charms (color and styles may vary from photo)
- 1 silver charm (style may vary from photo)
- 1 thread tassel charm (color may vary from photo)
- 2 suede tassel charms charm (color may vary from photo)

I always love seeing your versions of coptic books! Thanks for stopping by, have a great rest of the week!
