    Thank you for showing how to make this lovely book. Can you tell me what text paper you used for the Quick Leather Journal?

    I can’t begin to thank you for these wonderful tutorials. Though I have books on making books I never find them easy. Now watching you, it all falls into place. I find it so easy to follow you and do things I have always wanted to have a go at. Thank you so much. just one complaint I could spend hours watching you… in fact i do.

    Hi Judy – I used 80lb Mohawk Superfine paper for the signatures. You can buy it from Dick Blick or Hollanders in different sized sheets.

    Hi, thanks for the video. I make paper & want to use in the books I make but its too stiff. Do you know what I can add to make paper more pliant & with a smoother surface to write on?

    HI! I like making the journal. I didn’t have enough of the thread left over to use to tie shut the overlapping piece. I would love to have know about that in advance. How much would you use —another 15 – 20 inches or so? I was also thinking of adding an 1/8 inch think leather lace-like piece but wasn’t sure how to attach it to the cover. I’d appreciate any ideas. Thanks!
