Project #102: a Treasure book

Tuesday, 17 January 2012 by Irene Hoofs


Treasure book by Véronique from Pichouline

what you'll need:
*you can choose between glassine bags, paper bags or envelopes  - you can choose the quantity yourself, I used 10 bags.
*glue stick
*magazine, craft paper or coloured paper

Step 1:
Cut of the closure flap of the glassine bag.
Step 2:
Choose a nice picture, kids drawing  or a graphic design from a magazine, you'll need it to make the cover of your book.
Measure the size of 2 bags and cut the cover out, it's better that you cut it out a little bit bigger.
Fold the cover in half.
Step 3:
Glue the entire frontsize of the first bag on to the back of the front cover side. Glue the other bags to eachother, but only in the middle over the total length of the bag, so you get an "accordeon".
Step 4:
Punch a hole on the right side of the front & back cover.
Step 5:
Use some tape to attach the cord onto the book.
Step 6:
Let you beloved one find some treasures, he or she can keep everything he or she likes.
Step 7:
You can decorate the cover with a stamp, picture or whatever you like.
Step 8:
You can make a lot of varieties playing with colours, words & designs.

Have fun!
