I made these using the instructions in the book 'Cover to Cover'. They are my second attempt at 'codexes'.



Three are covered in fabric (flowers, Betty Boop, coffee/tea), and two in paper (New York scene, salmon)



I'm really happy with them!

thanks! i found it easier to work with paper than fabric cover material, and it makes a sharper crease, and than adding lots of glue is always important.
