Are your May flowers blooming? If not, never fear, we've got plenty of spring blooms here at Altered Pages!
These blush beauties inspired my latest little book. It has an origami pocket center signature, with a vellum stitched liner and heavy cardstock cover.
If you're interested in instructions for the origami guts, you'll find them HERE. You can see that the inside of the pocket pages was white, but I lined them with deli paper gel plate prints:
You can see I added ink and stamping and some spray inks to the cover and origami signature.
To add vellum and cover, sandwich the signature, vellum, and cover together, clamping them all together, open, with clothespins. Cradle the spine of the papers in the open center of a phone book or magazine, and poke a hole using a pokey tool or darning needle about 1 inch from the top and bottom of the folded spine.
Then, using a darning needle threaded with waxed book thread or embroidery floss, go in and out the prepunched holes, tying a square knot on the outside of the spine with the two tails.
Nothing in the pockets yet, but next time you see this little book, it will be full up of tags and other flowery surprises!
