THE PROJECT!

My BF's colleague had asked me in December, (because she knows I'm into book-making) if I could imagine to bind a guestbook for her sister's wedding.
Those who know me can imagine, that I did not hesitate one second say "YES!" - although it was quite a heavy burden to know that this book HAD TO BE PERFECT - NO MISTAKES allowed!!! (;
But as I am a perfectionist in these things there was no real doubt that it would not be perfect!!

So here are the steps in making THE BOOK!

Cutting and pre-poking the pages



All of them ready to go (;



BOUND!



Ready to glue the fabric onto the cover



and around the edges to the inside



Et voilà: the finished book!



Measuring 25x25x4cm!!!
50 pages
1 strand of embroidery floss
50cm of cotton fabric
glue
AND
time & fun (;



NO DOUBT: I AM PROUD!
And I would have loved to keep it!

There will be one for me one day!!!
