While Sebastian is counting his pennies in hopes of having enough to purchase his very own car, I thought I would post a few quick photos. As you recall, my current project I have tentatively labeled The Book Project.
And I have made a few as you can see below. All of these are closed and I had been thinking perhaps I needed one or two that were open.
For some reason or other, I kept putting it off. It may have been because I wasn’t exactly sure how to go about it. The other day I decided just to dive it and give it a go.
I started by making the covers from chip board. While they are not perfect, I think they will work out okay. The book covers are glued to the chip board.
I planned for the white one to be a butterfly book and the blue one is about giraffes. I meant to take more photos as I went along, but in spite of myself, I really did happily lose myself in this activity.
Each one has different end papers. I chose this floral paper for the giraffe book.
The challenging part was the open pages and getting them to look like a regular sized open book. While these are not bound and stitched like a real book, I hope I mimicked the effect well enough. Each page had to be glued in place. I know what you are thinking. Who in their right mind would spend a whole afternoon doing such a thing? Uh, that would be me.
That’s not the end of these little open books but that’s all I have right now. The rest of this project should come together fairly soon, but then I’ve thought that for quite a while now.
Thanks for reading – really. I mean it. Thanks.
