Last year I made a going-away booklet for a friend who loves cats. This was so fun and easy! I gave all our co-workers pages to decorate, then put the book together using my (We R Memory Makers) Cinch binding machine.
Take a look at a few of the pages:
The front and back covers were made the same way. I cut down chipboard to 5×6 and covered them with pages from an old book. I cut out these fabulous cat pictures from a piece of Cavallini Vintage Cat gift wrap (bought at the Paper Source). The pages were edged with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink.
Here’s the inside of that cover:
And the back cover, inside and outside:
Here’s one example of an inside page. I used scraps to create the background then stamped this Magenta cat, cut her out and glued her on.
This was such a fun project, and a true labor of love. Sadly, I didn’t take any photos of the book when it was put together. Bummer.
Thanks for stopping by.
