I used an old book that I picked up at a thrift store, and took all the pages out of it. I was left with just the cover. I stained it with several colors and then sealed it. The image on the front is one of the pages included in the kit. I sewed around the edges and left the threads hanging off to give it that shabby look. I added a seam binding bow and a flower charm to the spine as well as a seam binding closure. All of the seam binding I hand dyed.
It measures 6-1/4 x 9-1/2 inches and the spine is 1 inch. It has 3 sewn-in signatures. There are 78 pages, counting front and back, 23 pockets, 21 tuck spots, and 1 envelope on the inside back cover.
Again, thank you so very much for visiting me today! I really appreciate it! Have a wonderful day!
