Hello, Happy Monday to you all 🙂 Today I made myself a little notebook, just because……
I don’t need another notebook, but I couldn’t bear to see the huge amount of brown packing paper that was scrunched up ready to go out to the bin. I mean, it was a huge pile…..so I tore it up into strips (easy as it was already perforated), and ironed it. Yes I do iron sometimes….haha!
After I ironed it, I folded it up into signatures
Then sewed along the edges to make the pages secure….one single page wasn’t thick enough, so I doubled them up.
After that I put a few signatures together and sewed up the middle so that it would fold over nicely
I glued some tissue paper onto the cover to make it….pretty, and placed contact paper over that so it would lie flat. It kind of detracts from the whole recycling thing, using contact paper, but I want to take this out in public and I’m sure nobody wants bits of tissue paper floating around their head, haha!
So there we are – a hand made little book 31 pages thick, and measuring 7 x 7 inches.
P.S My writing is atrocious, I know.…
