pamphlet books

I love these little booklets and notebooks for several reasons.  Everyone needs a small notebook to tuck into their purse or bag, keep in the console in the car, by the bed stand or anywhere we need to jot a quick note, reminder or message.

 

The really great thing about them is that they were all created with scrap papers from previous projects.  Wondering what to do with all those gelli plate prints?  This is a great way to upcycle them.

My favorite reason why I love this structure is because the booklets are actually two signatures sewn as one.  Clipping the two signatures together, an awl will create the three holes in both signatures at the same time.  No needle necessary.  Thread the holes using wax linen, tie in the center and it's done! 

 

These little gems make are also great for gift giving or using instead of a greeting card. I'll share the detailed instructions soon.
