Splendid Coptic Book

Saturday, May 21, 2022

With every scrapbook collection I create a matching coptic book with bookbinding kits and here is the Splendid 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 favorite part is the exposed binding and tying charms, beads, stickers, tassels, buttons, sequins, and more into the binding as I'm sewing.

This book is 4x6" which is perfect for full-sized photos and smaller memorabilia. It lays flat when opened which makes it easy to write & "art" in.

These covers are made from wood that my dad and I cut and then I painted a rainbow of stripes with acrylic paint on both covers.

For the bits & baubles on the spine, I added Heart Paper ClipsFlower CharmsButtons, and Sequins, all from my Splendid collection! Then on the cover I embellished with a rainbow of Floral & Leaf Die Cuts and a smattering of colorful Enamel Dots.

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