My project is done so I'm going to post it here - I hope this is where it goes. I hate to be the first to post though....
For this challenge I did a book binding project. The best part is that I didn't have to spend a dime to make this. I used found objects from around my house and craft room for the materials.
The front cover of the book was made from old plastic bags that I melted into a sheet. The plastic was mounted onto card stock and then I stitched around the edges with a decorative stitch using orange thread.
The inside cover is lined with a map of the United States, which I found in a travel brochure. The inside pages are made from brown paper lunch bags and an old scrapbook I was no longer using (and looking to get rid of). The pages alternate between paper bag and scrapbook page. Each paper bag page has a picture of a random place around the world (found from travel junk mail and magazines). The last paper bag page in each signature is for any other notes about your travels and has a saying cut from old magazines, ie: survival guide, It's a small world, dear diary and Walk On!.
There are 8 pages in each signature, 4 paper bag and 4 scrapbook, with a total of 32 pages.
The back cover is made from dark brown card stock. The book is sewn together using linen thread.
I like the way it turned out, for my first book. I'm already thinking of new books to make! Now if only we could travel so I could use it. I guess it could be my "reminiscing travel" book!
