Well, my goal this week was to get 3 books bound, but really, it was closer to 2 and a half. But I think I can be ok with that… Still a pretty good week for me, and I always enjoy this process 🙂
Here is a picture of the second one I made using my Own Stuff…
I love this one! I started with a bunch of tissue boxes I had. So I started cutting them up (for the pages). Then I realized a had a lot of cardboard of comparable sizes, so those when in the pile too. I kept cutting, and soon had a pile about and inch and a half tall. Perfect! I used an old pizza box lid and cut it in half for the covers. Then I covered those with mono-printed deli-paper. I stitched it together with left over sock yarn (yes, I have A LOT of this (maybe 200 balls? I have knit many socks before I discovered paint…). I was introduced to THIS video months ago, and I love it because it is single sheets (no fold) and lays as flat as a coptic stitch binding. Added a little more paint, stamped some flowers. A little more paint, a few embellishments from the embellishment drawer (including a Tim Holtz), she is done and ready to throw some paint at! 🙂

PS- next week is alter-something week. but I have never done it before. any ideas what I should alter? any tips?
