The Pamphlet Stitch
For these books, I used:
Awl, bone folder, 2 binder clips, waxed linen thread (although for small sized books you could use embroidery floss), 1 piece cardstock (mine is paste paper), 5-8 pieces of assorted paper (graph paper, lined paper, brown paper, white paper, etc.)
The nicest thing about making these little books is that, once you have the tools and materials out, you can make a bunch of them. Use them for small gifts, by inserting some quotes or pictures or bundling them with a set of pencils and/or pens. Or tie a bunch of these small gems together with a bit of ribbon for your favorite journal artist.
Or a trade!! Oh my goodness! A little trade would be fun! Perhaps after the perfect storm of holidays, parties and exhaustion has passed? Shall we?
