Mini Hardcover Book

November 1, 2011 at 5:53 pm 9 comments

This another mini book I made, this time with fabric and a hard cover. For the board in the cover and the flap I used pieces of a little gift box I got at a store. It had a flap with a magnet in it, so I used that part to make the book be magnetic as well. That way when you close the flap it snaps shut and stays. I also did two papercuts in the front and back.

I just followed regular bookbinding techniques to make this book, so If you want to make one then either buy yourself a book on bookbinding, or Google it.

    Gorgeous! What are you putting on the pages?

    Thanks. I’m not sure yet, probably lists of things for reference or Bible verses.

      That’s a neat idea – you could write all the verses you memorize. It has to be something special for such a special book. You could draw tiny illustrations for each one too!

    Yeah, that would be cool. But I need to be careful and not mess it up! I’m going to do whatever I decide on in pencil first.

    I like your endpapers. Are they paper cutouts or drawings/paintings/prints on the paper? I also like the wrap around cover.

      Thanks! Papercuts are made with an exacto knife; I cut holes in the paper to leave the design, and then glued them down for this project. The green & blue side has three layers of paper, but the other side has only two.

    Just reread your blog–you said papercuts, but I didn’t figure out what it meant ’til after I made the comment above!

      Very creative! I’ve never tried to make a book with any type of clasp, but you have inspired me. The magnetic catch is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

        Thank you!

I've done a pitiful job of reading this year. Do you have advice on how to read more (or watch TV less) amidst stress and a tired mind? Eternal God I've become inspired to increase my piano playing's finesse, but I still have fun banging out coffee-fueled tunes over lunch break. Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast!
Listen to the episode on my blog (link in bio). Let's pretend I'm standing in front of a rack of spacesuits and am about to be shot to the International Space Station in order to conduct research on interplanetary travel and meet a delegation of aliens.
