D is for… dos a dos

This is a super fun binding! It’s two, two, two books in one. The term comes from French, meaning “back to back.” It’s not difficult to make and a ton to fun to use. You can keep two journals or a journal and a commonplace book or any other combo that suits your needs. It’s also makes a great interactive journal between two people.
