Well, here we go, today is part one!
First, I took a piece of paper that was an ungainly 26" x 10" and decided
to transform it into smaller pieces
I then used my fancy dancy tool to help create the crease. I bought it in the book binding section at my art supplies store...but in the past I have used the back of a butter knife and it works just fine.
Now I sorted all of my sheets into magazines (sets of paper) I had 4 pieces per magazine, and I lined them up, one folded on top of the other. This is what they should look like. I made 3 magazines.
Et voila! You have sewn yourself a book! Isn't that exciting? Now for a little bit of reinforcement
Then, bulldog clip it and let it dry. After this we are on to the "making the cover" stage....but until I decide what the cover will be, that will have to be in the second installment!
I would love to hear what you think, if I should do more of these, if you want to make one and pretty much any feedback you might have for me! Until I post again....
Love and Kisses,
