Feels good to have complete a project. My first one for this week of Your Stuff… Use It! (my stuff?). Anyhow. This is one of my favorite styles of books to bind. It’s fast, easy, and I always have the stuff. And it’s a great on to throw in my purse, to use as a sketchbook, note taker, list maker, ect. I did go a bit fancy with this one, and added a layer of pattern paper on the front.
(The colors are NOT this bright in real life, but are they ever? heh)
To make this one, I used a file folder (old or new works fine, but if it’s a gift, I would go with new) pattern paper from Recollections, 20 pieces of printer paper, duck brand duct tape, a couple of green home-made polymer beads (optional and not shown) and some left over green sock yarn). That is it. 3 holes. Sew it up. Easy right?
Are you binding anything this week? Tell me about it! 🙂
Any ideas on what I should/could alter next week?
