hullo Smiley i'm new to craftster, but a long-time lurker. mini bio? i'm seventeen, live in new jersey. the end. i'm sure you all will get to know me the more i post. SO.

here's a little book i made for the boyfriend (who, is the best in the world. if i could show off the things he's made for me, you'd understand). there's at least twenty pages in there (i'm only showing a few!), i can't really remember. measures around 5 x 7 in & i covered it with some material i had left over from cropping some sweat pants, but i turned it inside out so the towely-sorta-inside of the pants was showing. it's the first book i've made. the best part is making holes with the hammer Smiley

pictoors!

book!

oops, glare. the little white box says "very much so."

that's not blood. just red paint. it just looks like it.

pop-up!

i'm sure there's threads on these boards on how to bind books, but i just basically cut/ripped up several sheets of paper for the pages, and covered two pieces of cardboard for the covers and then bound them together with a needle and thread. if you go and look at the structure or the way some scrapbooks are bound together by string (you could see these in like barnes & nobles or something) you probably could get the idea of which way to go.

oh and the best part is hammering holes with a hammer and an awl or a nail Smiley
