I used faux leather from Cricut to wrap the covers, then used red duck cloth as my binding. I reinforced it with a scrap from a USPS priority envelope made of flexible TYVEK. I used E-600 spray and gel. I will say, the spray is in a pump and is really thin. Patience is key. I also learned it will seep through the faux leather and cloth. I found the gel, in a very thin layer, set much faster. Be sure to use a brayer to work out any bubbles.
The title was found online, printed and cut. Once attached, I used liquid glass to seal the ink, in case it rains. I used a gold sharpie to make the frame. The globe was also found online and I used a small piece of Stampin Up washi tape. The Ellie badge is made with a flat bottlecap and image was found on Pinterest. The spine is large eyelets and parachute lacing.

I will add instant pics and ephemera during the trip. Thanks for looking! April
