Overview

Take your pick from a wealth of books so original they'll charm you right away and so useful you'll want to make them to preserve your thoughts, photographs, and memorabilia in the manner they deserve. Construct everything from folded to closed spine to envelope books, which expand so you can fill the "pocket pages" with small treasures. Stuff holiday stockings with tiny notebooks made from sticky pads, or emboss an elegant faux leather album. Or, try your hand at a unique "wandering book": open it up and unfurl a three-dimensional display. Then personalize every volume with ideas for a Chinese folded scroll, a botanical journal, baby book, and business travel book, to name but a few. Even produce decorative papers! 8 1/2 X 11.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Browning (Glorious Gifts from Your Garden) has an artistic touch that sets her book apart from other books on scrapbooking. Her projects make good use of handmade paper, natural objects, and currently popular decorative techniques such as thermal embossing. Step-by-step instructions are given for making bindings and lacing entirely from scratch. Kirschner Braun approaches scrapbooking from the perspective of the genealogist and family historian. In addition to advice on mounting and preserving documents and photos (make copies), she has a chapter of genealogy basics with forms and practical information. The book is beautifully illustrated with Kirschner Braun's own family material. Both books are excellent additions to public library collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
