I forgot to say earlier - I usually do this. It not only makes it a bit sturdier, it means I don't have to worry about about keeping the back clean, I can do stitching or piercing without it looking a mess on the back and I can use any colouring medium I like without worrying about bleed through. I have to confess that I'm a messy enough crafter that the first of those reasons is actually the biggest for me
