keyrings

Oooh this was so much fun to make, just a different use for the many mini books I have been making lately. Demand has been really high at the craft fairs but people definitely want choices so I am making loads more, if they dont all sell then its more for xmas stockings.

Apples and pears

Apple and Pear

Just a bit of an update on the apple book that I did, well I tried to make a pear to go with it, unfortunately I have temporary run out of old books to cut up, and chose to use something a bit more modern. The paper was too thick and the spine too stiff, so although you get the idea from the photo, the final version will definitely be made from an old poetry book just like the apple was.

New bindings

I bought myself one of those staplers that can go through loads of pieces of paper at once the other day. I wanted to staple loads of papers together that I had lying around the place, just to keep them together really. But Then I came across this idea for a binding using one of these staplers. Anyway it seems to work as long as the spine is no thicker than the papers. It’s lovely that the front cover opens flat, would be nice to use for binding artwork or photographs together.
