I’ve spent much of the day so far making these two little books. The smaller one is made out of one piece of 12″x12″ designer paper and some raspberry red cardstock with some strips of designer paper for the front. The interior of the book has little pockets as well as places for words and pictures on the front and back of the pockets. It’s not perfect, not by a long shot, but it’s a learning experience.
The bigger one is made from envelopes – I have blue and red ones that vibrate against each other. I’ve decorated the front but am not too happy with it. I’ve not done a brill job of putting the book together either.
However, in both cases I see it as a learning experience, and they are perfectly imperfect given that they are my first attempt at such projects.
