Kinnari - the brains and talent behind Pinkfresh Studio - asked me to make her a book using the new Happy Things collection (I threw in a bit of Up in the Clouds too!) and here's how it turned out:
I started by painting two 4x6" wood boards aqua.
Then I trimmed papers from the Pinkfresh Studio collections into slightly smaller than 6x8", stacked three papers together, then folded them in half.
I made a template for drilling holes through the cover and then used the same template to pierce holes through all the signatures (groups of papers).
I sewed the book together using a Coptic style of binding and black thread, then I added buttons, puffy stickers, pearls, jewels, and more, as I went along.
I decorated the cover with a few embellishments to finish.
She can use this book for photos, journaling, mixed media projects, and more!
Hope she likes it!
