I folded white pieces of paper in half before using a snowflake border die (Snow Flurries) to cut the open edge. Every other signature in the book had a snowflake folded around it. Here is what the spacer looks like in the book:
All of my stitched books use an exposed spine and hand-waxed linen thread. Here is a close-up of my stitching:
The band on the cover wraps around the book cover so that it is continuous on the front cover. Here is a close up of the stamping and focal image on the cover:
The stamps, paper, and ribbon are all from Club Scrap. The paper comes from Destinations - a kit themed around travel. I really liked the colors for winter, though, so I used the plain papers in this book.
I think this book would be a great place to record winter memories, and remind of you of the snow when it's warm outside. I'm also excited to try this technique with other edge dies. I recently got the Scrollwork die from Sizzix, and the Classic Scallop die from Spellbinders. I think these will also make great borders, and you need a die cutting machine to cut the two layers of cardstock.
