Here are 4 journals that I made. Two in the front are Coptic binding and the two in the back are long stitch binding. The paper that I used for all 4 was watercolor 140lb. On the two in the back that I used a long stitch binding, I had bought black bookbinding repair tape for the spine. The paper I used for the cover was blue card stock paper, Japanese paper with a light blue and pink design, butterfly paper, and for the small journal I used washi tape.
