Hi Joyce,

I used a Funny, Fizz, and Salsa.  Post a picture when you complete it.  I would eat to see it.

Hi CraftyButterfly!  Thank you!

Yes, it's beautiful here....I just wish I wasn't so busy or too tired to enjoy it.

Hi Karen! 

Thank you so much for your help and your pictures which made it easy to understand.  What do you use for adhesive?  Any particular type of glue?

I don't know if this is posted somewhere in the forum but I could not find it in search.  Can anyone tell me how I would turn a completed x-stitch on Aida cloth into a card?  I used to cross stitch many moons ago and reading this forum made me dig out my old stuff and now  I want to do something with it.  And if I use it for a card, is there something I'm supposed to put on it so that it doesn't get dirty?

Hi everybody, sorry for the late reply!

Thank you for the kind comments.

Okay, in answer to some of your questions......

Yes, I just used tacky glue for the signatures.  The signatures are pieces of card stock folded in half and I glued them back-to-back, with the end/outside pieces glued to the book boards (after the bookboards were covered with paper).  Then I took cardstock that was about 1/2 an inch shorter in length but same width as the first set  and double-stick taped those to the 1st set of cardstock by lining up the outer edges and corners of the pieces. Then, did again with a third set that are again smaller in width.  So, if you open the book all the way, it actually forms a star.  But you could just stop with the first set of card stock and have a regular book.

It was kind of messy because I didn't have a binder clip or something similar to keep them together.  So I just found the heaviest books in the house and place it under.

I guess you could say it's 6 pages?  Or 12 , left and right.  Hope that makes sense.

Oh, I forgot to answer Sugar Queen.

I just used regular Tacky Glue and double stick tape.  But I found that there is a glue called PVA that is used for bookbinding, so I think I'm going to buy a jar.

I don't know much about washi paper.  I just know that it's what I used...hee, hee.  Except I don't think the pretty paper I used on the second books is washi.

Anyway, here is a link I found with information about its history:

The book is 3 x 3.  

I really enjoyed this process and am considering getting serious about bookbinding so I can also make and sell these in addition to my flower hair accessories.

Here's another one, except with this one, I tied the bow towards the back of the spine, just to see what it would be like.......
