Not sure what the theme of this little book will be, but I'm leaning towards using butterflies--can you picture a pretty one right in the center of the flower shaped cover? Here's how this little book came to be . . .
First, I stacked two Foundations Décor flowers, clamped them down, and drilled holes in three of the petals. It turns out that two would have been sufficient, but I wasn't sure how I'd be stitching them together.
Next, I glued a gel print on the front, but of course forgot to take a pic! The Xacto knife you see in the background was instrumental in trimming the paper from between those petals.
The pages 2 1/4 inches wide, cut from a nice off white paper, accordion folded, and then glued together, but leaving wiggle room for the book to open. Since the cover is rounded, it was necessary to leave those little gaps.
A simple square knot tie through each pair of holes finished the binding.
Stuff I used:
Foundations Décor flowers
drill and clamp
gel plate monoprint from my stash
waxed linen thread for the binding
cream colored paper for the book pages
