Hello, my name is Kirsten and I LOVE making books! After my last project making a beautiful little gift box from a plain ol' box from the dollar store I had the idea of creating a box to go inside.
Here's what I used:
The main structure is an accordion which is painted with gesso and paint with a dry brush, stencils and collage papers.
Inside the book are two signatures made from several pieces of collage papers sewn into the accordion with a three hole pamphlet stitch.
The folded book fits inside the book and stays in place with a ribbon secured to the bottom of the box with a piece of washi tape.
I hope this little project inspires you to create something this week!
