There are so many ways to make books and I have a made a few over the years, from post-it note books to small photo albums to funky art journals. This book was inspired by a youtube video. Type Jennibellie into the search bar and you can see lots of the great stuff she does. She recycles!
I liked the way she bound the signatures- she was using greeting cards- so decided to give it a go.
I used a heavy weight card stock for my pages. This will become an art journal so the weight will withstand the paint and glue quite well. It's about 6x8 inches with a 3inch spine.
I enjoyed making it so much and had lots more card stock and decided to recycle a bit too.
These are 4x6 inches with a 1inch spine. The covers and spine are made from cereal boxes that I first used as scratch paper under other projects. All kinds of paint and inky goodness there.
I hope you get some playtime today or at least some youtube time.
Have a GREAT day!
