Getting Crafty for the Holidays

We were so excited to host a book-binding workshop put on by local creatives Urban Craft Camp, which is headed by some pretty talented ladies: Ana of We Love Citrus and Jenn of My Three Sons. They’ve joined forces to put together creative workshops  and events to inspire the maker in all of us.  And with the Holidays in the air, it is the perfect time to get crafty for holiday-gift-giving.

Here is a list of basic materials you’ll need to get started on book binding:

  • healing mat
  • glue
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • a straight-edge or ruler
  • bone folder
  • book binding needle and thread
  • paper

There are a number of ways to get crafty with book binding. Pinterest has some pretty helpful tutorials to get you started.

If you’re looking for some pretty paper to use as a cover, we love the colors and prints of Rifle Paper’s wrapping & decorative paper.
