Playing with the Bind it All


I decided to give "book making" another try, and this is what I came up with today. My book is 4-3/4" by 3-1/2", and is based on Tim's book with instructions here. I did a little morphing...used the BIA of course, 5/8 " coils, covered just the front and back sides of the chipboard covers instead of wrapping it, and I changed the inside pages to include a couple of tags and a coin envelope. I embellished the front of the book with a Fragmentz from Tim's new line, and tied on some twine, buttons and ribbon to the BIA coils. I distressed the inside pages and stamped inside a bit, but there is still plenty of room for photos or journaling.

Guess I'm on a book making roll...already have ideas for my next one swimming around inside this little ol' brain of mine. Hugs again, Gerrie
