book makin'

since i have been taking so many great classes on bookbinding, i thought i would go in another direction and make this one......it is made out of my own hand pulled paper with my mom's dried flowers.
the white paper was given to me, but all else is mine. i had fun with the binding!

this is a small book with an exposed spine. i think showing off the work in the stitching is important, because it takes a while for this step . i made the book cover and back as well. this paper was kindly given to me from my master book binding teacher. she has a ton of scraps that i have used for everything.
pretty, no?
