So my crafts class had a book making element that went with each craft. Which means I got to experiment with different book making techniques and get a grade for it  Cheesy

This book is your average star book. I decorated each page and made covers from scrap mat board and wallpaper samples.

The cover


The insides


The second book is all hand made paper (By me!) except for the cover. Again, it is matboard covered with wallpaper samples and decorated with stickers.

The cover


One of my favorite pages

Cool!  Do you think you'll use the star book to display other art work or pictures?

This book was made for an assignment. It isn't that big. I do make other larger star books with pictures and things in them but this one is staying as is.

the second book is the one with the handmade paper. The first one is just regular paper. I used the kits that they had at my school for class but they are the ones you can buy at michaels. We did use a wooden block to smoosh it down and help drain the water out. It was a lot of fun  Grin

I did not put flower petals into mine but other girls in the class did put flower petals in theirs. I just did it the easy way with paper only. And cotton linting. I believe dried flowers wont brown.. but they might get crushed easily. I am sure other people here on this board have made their own paper and would be willing to share  Grin

I really like your book. It's something I've always wanted to try out.
I like your mix of patterns and colours
