For this project I used:
A watercolor book
Cream colored card stock
White card stock
White embroidery thread
12ss Light Siam rhinestones
10ss Crystal AB rhinestones
1/8 inch hole punch
I previously bound a book using a much simpler book binding method and you can view that here. The book binding method I used here turned out much more complicated but I chose it because I wanted a book that would sit flat when opened. You may want the easier method or you can even purchase a plain journal and decorate it with rhinestones as I show you below.
The actual binding of the book is complicated so you may want to watch this youtube video which explains the process:
I suggest using embroidery thread that is about 18 inches long, and I used short straight needles rather than the curved needles.
Rhinestones and wax tipped tool are available from:
