Coptic Crazy & BEST book swap!

I spent the other day sewing up some mini coptic-bound notebooks, all bound for the shop! The more I play with coptic, the more I love it. Such a simple, quick way to bind something, and it never fails to look great!

This appeals to me especially because I'm always seeing things that make me think "Oooh! That would be a fun notebook!" In this picture alone you can see that, along with some fun scrapbook-paper-covered notebooks, there's also one with a Chocolate Frog Card cover of Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter, and one made from a mini box of Corn Pops. I have to admit that I have a large pile of things just waiting to be turned into coptic notebooks, I just have to get to it!

Also, I recently participated in the Bookbinder's Etsy Street Team's tenth team swap - my first time getting to participate!

I made a forwards-backwards envelope book for the swap, and mailed it to anticovalore, who has a gorgeous, gorgeous shop herself.

This is my book that I made, above, and here below you can see the book that I recieved from kurberry:

I absolutely love it! The detail is lovely and the cover is so touchable... I can't quite explain it, but I'm a very tactile person, and I want to hold this book all the time!

Check out the Bookbinding Team blog for other books that were in the swap! They've all been fabulous so far!
