hey there all! Lera here poping my perverbial Craftster cherry. well at least in the posting of the craft-y stuff department.
anyways what i will be posting here are a few hand made books that i have done over the years. two from my first year of collge (i think i made about 6 or 7 total that year. some are lost may they rest in peice) and one that i have done just rescently. i do love book makeing along with lots of other crafts. but i hope i can produce some good things to show yall
ok the first up is probably to second or thrid of the books i made in college. as a graphic design student in my college we are tought how to bind our own books. do most of us remember? errrrk....sortta. but yah anyways. this book is a saddle stich book. produced with the fallowing items: Milboard for the cover, japanese paper for the cover, senew to sew up the bindings, fabirc tape, glue and cartrage paper. big list but worth it. plus i got an "a" on my book ^_^

(forgot to mention some of the pics are wonky sorry)
The second book from school, again milboard, japanese papper fabric tape but this time we used black cardstock for the inside and bound it with screws. it was really fun. again this project got me an "A"
on its side
The last book i'm posting is one i made durning the week. it's to "help me live healthyer" i love it. not as clean or great as my other two but it's fun and thats what matters. the covers are panted canvas decorated with scrapbook paper cut outs. the filling is card stock it's bound together by tigertail wire and clasps, and has a tie to keep it closed
the inside (with matching bookmark)
on it's side w/book mark
finally here are all three books together and i am sorry for any blurry pics. please let me know what you think
