A Pretty Way To Keep
Your Seam Binding Attached
Here's an alternative to the spine button closure. This one doesn't have the strength of the sewn button for wrapping around, but it's a great way to keep your seam binding or ribbon attached to your junk journal while the book is open and in use.
It's really easy to do. I punch a small hole in the center of the book spine before my signatures are sewn in and insert my decorative brad.
Then, I use the hidden spine pamphlet stitch binding to add my signatures. Or, I use the 4-hole pamphlet stitch that 'skips' over the middle of the spine.
To attach my seam binding or ribbon, I wrap it around the brad once and I'm done. Now my seam binding is never misplaced!
