Wow, thank you so much art_ache.  Your comments and the diagram were really helpful.  My next bookbinding project will be a recipe journal, so hopefully your advice will help fix my problem.  Once again, thank you for putting so much effort into that advice.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

thanks for the reply.  i read it before the meltdown and now of course.  i think the problem might be something to do with either too many or too little pages.  thanks for the advice though!

we just mixed icing sugar with a little water and food colouring.  you could use lemon juice for a lemony flavour though.

365  COOKING / Dessert / Return of the cupcakes! (Img heavy) on: December 09, 2005 06:22:48 PM
I posted these yesterday but the thread was lost so here they are again.  I can't really remember what I said but they're just some cakes me and my sister made for a school fair.  The spider ones were the most popular with kiddies and the flowers with adults.  I thought it would also be a fun activity for a kids party IE kids get a cupcake/giant cookie/other food item and decorate it with different coloured icing and lollies.  Messy but inexpensive, fun and tasty!

Sorry to those who had already seen it, but my post was lost  Sad.  Oh well here it is again.  I'm also including a diagram of the problem I had if anyone could offer some suggestions.

Whole thing:



Close up of photo:



Close up of ribbon:



Binding:



Here's the diagram of what went wrong.  I found that when I glued the end pages to the cover, if the book was closed, the paper bunched up and when it opened and the pages were lain flat, the weight of the pages would rip the opposite side end page up.  If anyone has any suggestions they would be much appreciated.

I realise that this is probably the worst MS paint drawing ever  Embarrassed.



Link for the diagram if it's unclear or grainy:

Thanks and sorry for posting this twice.

Edit: I didn't realise how tiny the diagram was so I chaned it.  It's now bigger albeit grainier.  MMM grains!

Yes, it was posted before, by me...
I would appreciate credit, or at least post this in the same thread that I wrote with the tute.

I checked out your post, and the toys certainly are cute.  However, I think you misunderstood me.  I did not get the idea or instruction for the toys that I made from Craftster or any other internet site, but assumed that other people may have made similar items and posted them before.  Thus, I would not like to give credit for a tutorial I didn't use.  I will however, edit the original post to include a link to the topic you originally posted.

they're so well bound!! congrats  Smiley

just a question, after binding the signiatures together, how did you attach them to the cover?

thanks,

I know this probably comes a bit late, but I thought it would be cool if there was a challenge to make your own Christmas decoration(s).  People could make one super decoration or a set or garland of them.  It could be made a bit more interesting buy putting a price limit on materials, saying people had to use recycled materials, decoration must be edible etc etc

I thought this could be fun as it's kind of relevant and you can be really creative making X-mas decorations that aren't really tacky as it can be hard to find nice albeit affordable decorations in the shops.

op shop = opportunity shop.  i think they're called thrift shops in america or something like that.  basically they sell second hand stuff, kinda like savers but on a smaller scale.

also, no offense, but hasn't there already been a challenge like this?
