Book ’em ….

There’s not a Fabulous Find today, but I did want to share my adventures in bookbinding.

A few weeks ago I took a class in bookbinding at the coolest paper store — *The Paper Source. They offer material for every level of crafter. The class used pre-made kits, which was great because the hard work was done — cutting the mat board!. The kit came with pre-cut covers, inside paper, binding and cover paper.

Here’s what I made:

Then I got one of their accordian book kits and made this using using decorative paper:

Here’s the inside:

I think I need to make a bunch of these as holiday gifts! I was surprised at how quickly this accordian book came together.

Thanks for stopping by! (And check out www.paper-source.com)

(*disclaimer — I work part time at the Paper Source! And yes, I am basically working to support my paper habit.)

  1. Robi, these are gorgeous! Love ’em. You keep surprising me with the cool stuff you do. Be sure to seek out my friend Jill Grace at the Bad Ballet party. You two have a lot in common re paper crafting.

  2. Love that you’re working to support your paper habit. 😉

    • Yes, I embraced my “bad ballet” self and took a job just doing something different! Love your new blog, badballet.com — so inspiring!

  3. Oh wow Roberta! Now I want to take the PS bookbinding class! (LOVE all their stuff, so glad we finally got one in Austin! YEAH!) HUGS! 🙂

  4. The class was really fun… and the kits make it SO easy! The biggest problem I have is deciding what paper to buy — there is so much pretty stuff! Have fun shopping!

  5. Hi Roberta, What pretty books; gotta love that paper. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and your positive comments on my “art”.

    xoxo
