A new hand made book

Hello Crafters

Welcome welcome.

I have been getting back in to the swing of things lately. Today marks one year since I got my wheelchair, today though life is some much better and different. I have been doing intensive physiotherapy every week since the second week of January, as a result I now walk with no walking,, aids and even go put and am being more adventurous.  I have also started crafting much much more. First up of my creations I want to share with you is a handmade book I have created for myself.

I have used the Cafe au Lait collection and coffee stained printer paper for the internals. 
I have used some Graphic 45 papers for the outer cover and also the inside on the cover. 

This ornament on the front cover was made using some Tim Holtz gear and Finnabair embellishments. To compliment this ornament I added some bronze book corners.

To sew in the signatures in a way to not have the stitching on the spine of the book, I used the pamphlet stitch and I sewed each signature to a separate bit of chipboard that I then glued in to the spine. 


So here I a flip through on youtube.
