but the men turn as white as a ghost
when they see all the junk
I got up in my trunk
'cos, baby, I got more than most!"
Today's assignment was to turn junk into something remarkable. I came up with a 5x5 inch hand-bound blank book made of the following materials:
pages - cut from those manila envelopes with the clasp-thingy; we were tossing a bunch of used ones at work
cover board - a box that an iron came in that i was going to throw out
inside cover paper - posters from a previous theatrical production
cover paper - cool foil wrapping paper from a very special christmas gift from a very special person
thread - purple embroidery floss leftover from many previous projects
I've never hand-sewn a book before...this was quite new and exciting! I found a great tutorial for hand-sewing multiple signature blocks at Daydreaming on Paper.
