Although I've created many handmade books and altered a few, I felt it would great to create new covers to an existing spiral bound journal. This journal is small, approximately 4"x6", therefore, taking it apart to alter the covers wasn't so bad. First, I used two bookbinder's clip to keep the text pages straight and aligned before loosening the spiral by simply bending it back so I could remove the front cover. Once that was accomplished the bound together pages came out all together and the back cover was removed. I covered the front, back, and endsheets of the cover before re-assembling. It took a bit of playing to figure out exactly how to rebind the spiral and after a few mistakes I mastered it!  Posted by Hello
