Better notebook covers

Although I was happy with the solution I've been using for cardboard inserts for my notebook covers, it kept bothering me that they didn't quite look or feel like a hardcover book. And the scoring and folding took just a little too long. So here's the new improved version: 3 separate pieces of card, with a strip of cloth tape glued on to hinge them together.

(I should have some of these in the shop by next week; today is one of those days when everything has to be done 3 times to get it right, which is slooow going...)

This looks like a great solution! A real hardcover, hooray! Those days are the worst, though, when you have to repeat everything...
