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
- hole punch
- a straight-edge or ruler
- bone folder
- book binding needle and thread
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.
Go get your craft on and start creating for the holidays and the new year! And if you're ever in San Diego, keep an eye out for more upcoming crafty workshops with Urban Craft Camp.
