The cover of Hiccup's journal, and the pencil I made to complete the set.
The book itself is made of cardboard as a base, some great leathery vinyl stretched around and glued in place, then I used my dremel, drilled out some holes through it, and weaved in that cord around the edges. While that was happening, I had many, MANY pages soaking in tea dye, and then dried out. After which, I drilled through them, and the spine of the book, and threaded more cord through that to hold it all together.
The pencil was a large stick I found. I cut it to size, then drilled out the middle of one end, and shaped it a little. I then took some charcoal, shaped that with my dremel as well, superglued it in place, and then finished it off with some twine.
