Book




Look what I made this evening! I was tidying my work room and sat down to flick through a Alisa Golden book about bookmaking that Kari has loaned me and came upon a tab and slot book that is made without glue or stitching so I thought I'd have a go. I used envelopes that I'd been saving to sew into a book and got so carried away that I made a cover as well! Pics aren't superb as my digital camera doesn't zoom in well. ;-( I've included a scan of the front cover which is a bit clearer. It was good fun and easy to make even with my dodgy accuracy skills and, even though I probably should have been catching up of some of the commitments I'm stuck on, I'm glad I took the time to have a go.

Oh wow, that looks great! I just discovered your blog while I was searching for zebras. I'm pretty disappointed that there's nothing about zebras on your blog but this book looks really cool.
You should paint a picture in it of a big zebra. Just to make up for the lack of zebraism in your blog you know.
Or a frog... frogs are really cool too.
Actually, I could paint something for you if you want. Just let me know!
