For some days now, I’ve been looking for a small handy book with blank pages. But I was truly surprised to come across a nice hardbound book with a Rs. 350/- tag. That was really a bit too much. So I decided to make myself a book. Now, though i love doing craft projects, I usually end up with an item with no finish to it. Yesterday turned out to be a bit surprising though. I came across this really simple way of making a book from this craft site Little Birdie Secrets
So I popped into the market, got some clean papers, hardboard, and coloured threads. Assembled all my glue, and cutters, and went on to make a book. Well, three hours, and one broken drill-bit later, i made myself a pair of nice looking blank books. 😀
I’m really pleased with myself!
ps. Before i began, i dreamed of making lots of these books and giving them away to my nieces and friends. I had hopes of posting them with handwritten notes, and handmade bookmarks in it and all.. Now, after all the hard work i had to do to make these two books..i’m beginning to think otherwise. But then again, maybe not. 😉
