I think I have discovered a new hobby. (I don't need a new hobby, but I am really enjoying this one none the less.)
This book has a cover.
It also lays flat when opened.
I have found this GREAT YouTube Channel (Sea Lemon) that has all sorts of book binding methods along with other crafts. She is fantastic. I am now addicted. I watch her for instructions, but I also watch her for ideas and enjoyment while I fold the laundry.
