Gift Coptic Books


Thursday, April 27, 2017

To say "thank you" to my amazing design team and the graphic designers at Pink Paislee I made each of them a coptic book!
In between assignments, traveling, teaching, mommying, and life in general, I gathered all the supplies and worked on the books assembly-line style over the period of a few weeks.
They are all made with Oh My Heart patterned papers and matching colors of cardstock then embellished with the Heart Charms, pearls, jewels, and sequins.
I stitched the first half of each book with pink thread and the second half with aqua thread.
The books are made with 4x6" wood covers and they're great for photos, journaling, scrapbooking, and so much more. One of these days I will film through a finished book :)

I left the covers plain so each designer can decorate it and personalize it.

And then I feel like I spent more time on the packaging than making the books themselves lol!! Confession: I hate wrapping things! Because the wrapping just gets thrown away... Anyway, I tried my best to make them cute though :)
I took a few pictures and then popped them in the mail! It has been fun to see them received and I'm glad they all arrived safe and sound.

Thank you to all of the wonderful and talented people I get to "work" (can't call it work when it feels more like play!) with on a daily basis!

And, if you're interested in learning how to make these books, I do have an online class available in my etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/255163506/coptic-bookbinding-class-pdf-and-video?ref=shop_home_feat_1

  2. They are beautiful!! The packaging was adorable and nicely complimented the treat inside!
    I've been following you on Instagram for several months but just made it to your blog in search of the instructions for these amazing Coptic Books! Now, however, I have millions of questions for you and dream of having my own line some day!

    My son served in the Army enlisted (Iraq & Afghanistan), stationed the last 3 years at Ft Lewis (Seattle/Tacoma) and we have lived in Denver (Littleton to be exact) for the last 23 yrs...lots of similarities! Thank you to your husband for his service and to you for yours, because military wives & mamas have some of the toughest jobs-sitting & waiting! So Thank you, Gracias, Danke, and Merci!!

    I'm excited to see all your future posts about life abroad and of course to see ALL of your artistic endeavors!
