Handmade Book, Recycled Book

Two books for gifts
Handmade book - the pages were from vintage books, envelopes, music etc which I coloured with paint. I've collaged a plain thin piece of paper to each page so that it can be used for writing in. I used a zutter binder to make the holes and attach the wire.

Recycled Book, a new book from an old one. The cover was printed on t-shirt transfer paper and transferred onto fabric, which went quick thick and shiny [probably kept the iron on too long], but I liked the effect. I embellished it with a bit of stitchery and beads.
I collaged each page with art work, found papers, printed papers etc

This image below shows most of the pages, you'll have to click on it to see it more clearly.


  1. You are the Queen of Bookmaking!

  2. Your two handmade books look great! I'm taking a bookmaking class on Saturday which I'm really looking forward to. Happy New Year :)
