Hi friends, I have been gone for awhile but only because we very suddenly had to move houses! It is a huge long story and I am just so happy to be settled and ready to create in our new home! I am starting a new project for November, called Project fall
, it is two weeks of fun projects from today til the day after Christmas! I hope you all enjoy! So today is Day one and the project is a give thanks mini journal/scrapbook! I am using it to write the things I am thankful for all this month! So here we go!
My finished book measures 5inches long by 6 inches tall obviously you can choose what works best for you!
|First I cut all of my papers down to 10x6 inch pieces and then folded them in half|
|I then burnished them with the end of my scissors |
|I added tags and random strips of paper|
|After this I would up with two sections of paper each with four pieces of paper|
|I took the first section and opened to the middle, I measured the six inches and marked in the center at the 1 inch and 5 inch|
|Do the same thing with both signatures add the cover and poke through there as well|
|Grab your needle and book binding thread and start on the outside cover and poke your needle into the book|
|poke needle into the other side and come back around to the front |
|Tye your string as tight as possible and your done! Just a note I did each signature right outside of the center line on the cover, which is why it is tied on one side and not in the middle of the book!|
I hope you all enjoyed the tutorial, I will be back tomorrow with another fun project for you all, questions and comments always welcome! Have a great day!
