This probably doesn't seem like much...but i'm kind of excited about it. I wish I had thought about making the pages more creative but now it's pretty much too late. But anyway, I made this book for my ex-boyfriends lil sisters 14th birthday. She is getting into the whole DIY thing and so I wrote down a bunch (and I'm still adding to it) of the tutorials I have found over the past few years. Some from this site some from others. I just got a simple folder and wrote out the tuts. on plain notebook paper and then to make it somewhat spiffy, I made a dedication page, table of contents and numbered all of the pages to make it more...book-ish. I may still go back and decorate the pages some...probably should. And I decoupaged the cover.
heres the inside...see uber boring...http://www.hipgallery.com/photopost2/data/500/10179IMG_0610.JPG
heres the cover...its so exciting to me!!!http://www.hipgallery.com/photopost2/data/500/10179IMG_0609.JPG
I'm going to explain why i chose some of the phrases.
Amanda - obviously, her name.
Freshman year - obviously, going to be a freshman
Lucky Star - she is an actress of sorts
(the big yellow one says) YOUR STYLE - I was too lazy to try and find all of the letters to spell out "do-it-yourself" so i left it with that.
the rest you cant really read. anyways tell me what you think of the cover atleast i know the inside blows....actually tell me what you think of the idea in general. I think I may give her a box I have that i dont use anymore and put a bunch of old shirts, some of my fabric scraps that are cool, and some other lil crafy tid-bits in it. what do you think of that?
