It's Plain, It's Simple, It's Lemon

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. and Good Day,

ALHAMDULILLAH, first and exclusive! It's a PLAIN handbound book for DIY: 'Decorate It Yourself'. Special made for those who loves to DIY! It's nice, simple and I think it's PERFECT as a notebook, diary and also personalized GIFT that you can decorate yourself.

I'm using coptic stitching for the book and basically, all signatures are stitched together with the book covers. It holds everything together tightly, but with super flexibility. The pages will open up completely flat without risk of damage to the spine and that’s why this method is so popular.

“So the freshness lives on in a lemon,
in the sweet-smelling house of the rind,
the proportions, arcane and acerb” 
~ Pablo Neruda ~

"Love is like Lemons"

“Life itself is simple. It's just not easy.” 
~ Steve Maraboli ~

I like seeing how the book lies completely open when flat on surface. That is one of the benefits of binding this way. We can see the entire page and most people find it's great to write and work in.

"Pastel colors are best for notebook. It helps you find your mood while writing notes,
and make you smile too just when you read it back"

I recommend people to be creative and please think out of the box. You can decorate your plain notebooks with quilling decorations or almost everything possible to personalized the book itself. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.

I hope you like my version of plain handbound books. I love using anything simple and easy to found. It really doesn't need to trouble yourself when you're in mood of crafting. Make yourself comfortable and you'll find happiness in everything you do.

Thank you and Have a blissful days ahead!
