Coptic Stitch Bookbinding

So I had this old store of A3 construction papier from many many years ago.  It was earmarked for papier heaven, when I came across this notion of creating my own bound book - probably on Pinterest, where I confess I spend too many hours a week surfing. 

When I saw this, I just had to try and make one.  Like most of my Papier projects (and perhaps just a little bit like Sir Edmund Hilary - if I may be so bold as to compare myself to a true pioneer) I made it because "it was there".

This has been bound using the Coptic Stitch style.  Follow this link where you can view the instructions and techniques on an easy-to-follow You Tube video. 

Now to decide what to use it for - any suggestions?
