I have made books from cereal boxes and other boxes over the years
Here is a fun way to create a travel photo book Size of mine 5 x 5"
This is the first part, so if you are going to make one, I will add the final tutorial about binding the book and making some pockets. That will be in a few days.
First open the box up flat and trim for front ,back and spine
I had to narrow my spine by scoring lines closer. Paint both sides with acrylic paint and dry
Collage the inside and out with themed paper. I cut up a map, some pictures, music and bits of old french book text.
I had a butterfly that need some color, some words from a print and pictures from a travel brochure. I used Elmer's glue and a brayer to flatten things out.
Did you notice I used a french onion soup box? Clever!
Make a cover for each stack of paper by printing a large image to cover the whole sheet
Fold in half and encase signatures.
I used scrapbook paper that I copied, .a copy of a Paris folder from Anthropology, and a collage I made in Picasa.
Here is the inside of my book covers.
Next time I will add directions for stitching a cool binding and some other interesting ideas I have.
