2 out of 3 ain’t bad!

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! 🙂

What did you create this week?

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