This blank book/journal/notebook is pretty straightforward. Though it may fly in the face of the idea of "recycling," I always feel like I need to line these covers made of pieces of packaging. They just feel too flimsy otherwise, and the back of the package is often a little ragged looking from glue. So... I lined this one with more of my favorite pearlescent cardstock, in pink this time. I also added a second narrow strip of that stock to further reinforce the spine.
The journal is stitched with a long stitch binding in pink hemp cord, six signatures stitched into three sets of holes/sewing stations. And that's that.
