This has been such a great series…thank you so much! Reply I would have loved to see you add a ribbon place marker like some bibles and finer notebooks have. I can see how you’d add it right before gluing on a headband but others might not be able to figure it out. Reply to have a ribbon place mark you just need to glue some ribbon to the spine starting from the bottom so the excess will be at the top of the book before you add the Text Block “Headbands”, but make sure it’s long enough. Reply I like this creative add-ons, it makes the book look so professional! I have one off-topic question: What is the font of the “Craft is dismissed” writing and where did you find it? I love it! Reply I never would have thought to use the eyelets! Great tutorials and wonderful inspiration,thanks! Reply Hi amber! I LOVE Bookbinding University, and I think it’s so great.

I have been thinking of yearbooks for my three year old grandson . Having blanks ready wil be a great idea. As nice as the shutterfly type books can be it will be nice to capture the action and I can glue it my collage pictures.
