Book binding the 'secret' way..........

Hi all,

I love book-binding and this weeks challenge provided the PERFECT excuse to try out a different binding technique that has been on my 'to try' list for ages.

Neil Walker's book cover kits are just right for the binding I wanted to use as the spine is separate to the covers.........





The binding is the 'Secret Belgian Binding' if you fancy trying it, I used instructions from a book in my collection but there are plenty of tutorials available on You-Tube too.
The binding takes a little patience and fiddling around but it's well worth the effort as its' one of the few techniques that give you a book that will open completely flat.

Here is the kit I used (Squared Off)........

Many Thanks for popping by today.
