There are various types of small journals on Amazon, that have kraft paper covers. I’ve made a jig on the honeycomb so I can just slip one in after the other and print a new design (weaving notes).
I found engraving directly on the covers makes a too-subtle design; more tone-on-tone. I used black, white and gold spray paint first (lightly, from above, so you make a paint mist that sinks down onto the paper) for better contrast. I finish up with a coat of spray shellac. This gives a supple feel to the front cover.
There are no commercial markings on the back, so more room for design!
