Yes, we’re bookbinding!

And loving the heritage, craftsmanship and romanticism of steam railways, we found an extra special cover for you.

This month’s project is to make a Japanese-bound notebook with a hand-marbled paper cover and beautiful cream pages inside.

Your kit includes everything you need for the project; you’ll just need a ruler, pencil and pair of scissors.

This is a great craft to learn, and this simple bookbinding process is one you can pick up easily and use again and again to make your own notebooks.

Even better, no more thinking that you can’t use a pretty notebook, because you can easily make another one when you’ve filled this one...

You can see the video tutorial for this kit below.

Orders are now closed for this craft kit.
