Small hard cover note book

This is one I made a couple weeks ago.  It’s mostly re-purposed materials.  It measures about the same size as  an ATC (2 1/2×3 1/2) (I put a stamp in and a pen for comparison).  I would make more of these, I like it and the way it turned out…

purple book

Another small handmade book, in purple this time (my mum’s favourite). This one was made with a reinforced greeting card, covered in scrapbook paper, closed with yarn, and decorated with home made beads and foam shape.  I think I filled it with computer paper.

mini notebook…

Another mini book I made.  I think I made this one the same as the last one, from a couple weeks ago.  Sorry I haven’t been around much lately.  Been working on a bunch of bigger, interesting projects… hope to share soon… 🙂

mini book

Here is a cute little book I made.  I took cardboard and covered it with some pretty paper scraps.  I sewed in some white paper (either printer or sketch, I forget).  I put a piece of string for a tie with a couple home-made beads and wrapped it around a cardboard ‘button’.  And voilà!  A pocket-size/purse-sized sketch/note-book =D

Turtle Notes…

Today’s project was one that was fun, and I love the both the process and the product.  In fact, I am tempted to make another one soon.  DH loves turtle, and I thought he needed a notebook to carry around and jot things down in, so I put this together.  I took a greeting card, coated it in gesso and acrylic paint, to cover the picture and writing, both hand and printing.  the put a pattern on using a stencil that I thought looked like the one on a turtle shell.  I traced and coloured a turtle picture I found on google.  I sewed some computer paper in that I had cut to size.  I attached a bead and a piece of yarn to fasten it, and Voila!  A cheap, medium sized notebook…
