Worktable Wednesday

I’m teaching a leather journal workshop in February and have almost completed my sample books. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to make up my mind about what types of closures to use.

I spent time today doing research on closure options and created a Pinterest board (Bookbinding Closures) of what I found.

You can get a look at what I found below (click on a thumbnail to view a larger image).

Any preferences?

I like the toggle closure on the black journal, row 2 number 2. I could do some cool beads to use for the toggle. I also like the pink one on your Pinterest page with the pen. Ohhh, I could do a pen as well.

Argh…Pinterest rotates the images in this post through its html code, so I’m guessing you mean these two:

Is that right? I really like the toggle – simple and classy.

I’m totally obsessed with closures, so I’m looking through your pinterest board with great interest. In fact, a couple of years ago, I took a workshop with Peggy Johnston that focused on closures!

I found your Pinterest boards via this post: I have now spent quite a bit of happy time looking through them. I wanted to thank you, they are a wonderful resource.

I’m glad you’re enjoying my Pinterest boards. I’m spending wayyyy too much time on there. It’s poison to someone like me, who’s pathologically curious.


So what do you think? I'd love to know!
