Okie dokie folks. I had a semi decent productive night last night. I've been playing around with an idea of making my own "bare essentials" (hmm can't think of if thats what their really called or not) type of albums. I love them however can't justify the costs. So, I decided last night to wing it and make my own.
The pages are 10x12 (this is the length and height before you bend it), cut from parchment paper, brown paper (the kind from the rolls), some kraft papers I adored and then lots of different large envelopes. You can see it all here. There's some legal envies and some document envies and then lots of inclusions. I used library pockets and pocket insets as well as blank time cards for these! Please avoid eye contact with the date on the pictures I took these late last night.. lol
|Next I choose a twine I liked and threaded a large needed and began sewing my book together. Making sure to keep the beginning and ending Knots on the inside of the album.|
|After I got it all sew up I then rolled it up and then rolled it again from the other side to make it nice and loose and idk, I just like it.. lol|
|I of course didn't have enough time to do the cover last night but I did add some friendly inking to get it all going.|
