Star Book

Have you ever signed up for something thinking it was going to be amazing and ended up being something that you found yourself dreading?  That is how I was feeling about my bookmaking class this week.  I was just feeling lazy and there were too many steps, too many pieces of paper to cut, and too many different things that were going wrong with my book…  until it started looking like a star!


Funny how your mood changes so quickly when something starts going your way J
I Give you- A Star BooK

After stitching the 7 large pieces together using waxed linen thread, and glued 14 small pocket inserts and glued the covers to the front and back pages. 




I ended up using scrapbook paper to glue around art board to make my covers and twine to tie the Star Book together.                               

Now im pumped about making my next book and filling this one with treasures from my travels!
