construction paper journal

this is my first attempt at making a journal.

here are the front and back cover, made from some construction paper i had lying around.

i didn't know better: i used elmer's white glue, and the paper got all wrinkled. also, i should have trimmed the black construction paper i used for the spine; i didn't and it's too thick and it shows through the cover... oh well, at least, i learned something.

for the inside pages, i used ordinary computer paper, on which i printed some lines.

i followed this tutorial to attach the cover:
and this tutorial to stich the signatures:

anyway, this was fun! for my next project, i am planning to make a notebook for school or something.
