6 Beginner Bookmaking Tutorials

The good news about being a new bookmaker is that the internet is full of lots of wonderful free videos, instructions and tutorials but it’s also the bad news – sometimes it can overwhelming knowing where to start.

Here is a curated list of my tutorials to help you start on your journey!

Create a Simple Stitched Journal

Start with a set of Pamphlet Stitched Notebooks if you want to make a basic hand stitched journal. This is the best place to begin.

One of my most popular tutorials is the folded Envelope Book. It’s quick, simple and has endless possibilities.

Make Your Own Junk Journal

The Accordion Concertina Journal is a wonderful place to begin if you’d like to make your own junk journal.

Spinning Accordion the perfect for those wanting to showcase their artwork.
