Cute Idea for Book Signature Threads

I found a cute idea for finishing the ends of the threads on a handmade book.  

I found it on Vintage Junk Journals. There are so many good ideas on this site!

All of the signatures in my new junk journal have a calendar page for the innermost page.

Debbie-Anne uses punched hearts for all of her junk journals, but I used punchies and hand cut shapes based on the theme of the page.

I glued matching shapes to the ends of both threads, sandwiching the two threads between the two punchies.

Fun, eh?

I bound six signatures into an old book cover:

World Changing Wednesdays

I did these for July #Letteringforchange.

These longer quotations chosen by Justine are wonderful, and they're a challenge for me.  Sometimes I just choose a sentence.
