  1. Hi! Just found you. Your tutorials are amazing!

    I was wondering if you could comment on how well the tape will hold up in the spine with frequent use — ie. when the whole notebook is filled in, will the spine look okay, or will it start to come off / crease weirdly? Does other washi tape fare better or worse? Is covering the whole cover all the way over the spine and the back better or worse? If you had to a notebook decorating technique (where everything gets covered, including the spine) a “most durable” award which technique would win?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Summer! So sorry that I didn’t reply to this earlier! Thanks to Jenn’s comment below, I finally noticed it and can respond!

      So—I’ve had no problems with the tape on the spine. Its flexible enough to handle opening and closing the notebook over and over. Washi tape would also work for covering the spine …only issue is that washi is typically translucent which means some of the original spine color may show through. Make sense? Duck Tape is probably the most durable option for covering the spine. It comes in a ton of colors and styles and can handle tons of wear and tear. Hope this helps!
