More Miniature Journals - Etched Copper

I etched some copper disks and rectangles yesterday and made more miniature journals.  
The copper is stamped with Stays On black ink which is used as the resist.   Anything not stamped gets etched away when you put it in the etch bath.  My new silhouette cameo made the interior pages a breeze to cut with that little tab on top!  Not sure I would have attempted those without my new electronic cutter.

I love, love, love this ship stamp.  Doesn't it make the journal look like some vintage pirate ship log?

This one has more flourishes and the spine is wrapped much more simpler than the other books.

I used traditional book binding sewing to sew all the booked paper together.
