Supplies Needed To Bind Books


One of the most popular crafts people can do at home is to bind their own books to be used to make cookbooks with family and favorite recipes, diaries and journals, sketch books, photo albums or just general all purpose books they can use for notebooks, to do lists and grocery lists.

Before beginning, however, you will need to make sure you have all of the book binding supplies you will need in order to complete your project. Too, it would also be beneficial for you to do a quick Google or Yahoo! search on how to bind your own books as there are several different methods you can use and it will depend on which one you choose as to what type of supplies or kits you will need to purchase.

For example, if you want to bind a book with a unique spine, such as with quilting thread, crochet thread, carpet thread, sewing thread or twine, then you will need to purchase the book binding supplies that will allow you to do this as opposed to a more traditional book binding technique where you would use staples to bind the pages of your book together. However, most of the supplies needed to create and bind a book are universal across whatever book binding technique you choose to use.

For instance, no matter what type of book you are planning on making and binding, you will most certainly need the paper to begin with. Make sure you purchase good, quality paper and you will need a size that, when folded, will give you the page measurements you desire for your book. For example, if you wish to make and bind a book that is 5 and 1/2 by 9 inches, you will need to purchase paper that has dimensions of 11" by 18" so that when you have folded the paper in half to create your pages, your end result will be the 5 and 1/2 by 9 inch pages.

Other book binding supplies you will need to purchase will include a good, quality cardboard -- this will be used to make the hardcover of your book, so you should make sure it is quite sturdy; felt, cotton fabric cloth, wallpaper or contact paper -- this will be used to cover the cardboard and actually be the outside of your book, so you will want to choose according to your desired theme; a paper cutter; scissors; glue adhesive; and either a stapler with staple pins or a large eye needle with the above mentioned thread options...

Once you have all of these items, you are ready to begin binding your own books and creating fabulous gifts your friends and family will really like and enjoy.

Art Techniques - The Types and Their Philosophy

By Annette Labedzki
Art encompasses a wide range of human activities, creations, and expressions that are a direct reflection of human emotions and experiences. Traditionally, Art Techniques include Music, Painting, Sculptures, and Literature to name some. In addition, if anything is done technically well, owing to innate skills, or learnt by study and practice, it is said to be an Art such as, Cooking, , driving, or even Grooming. In effect, we can say that Artistry is a sum of Art Techniques employed to bring out the Beauty, Taste, and the Symbolism of an artwork. Art also illustrates abstract thoughts and expressions.
