Leather Bound Friendship Book

by Andi Caswell


Fold each kitchen roll in half and flatten under a book - if you dampen the edges first then wait for them to dry this wors well to keep them flat.
cover each side in decorative paper.
add little pockets and messages.
add lace and pretty stuff.
cut 2 pieces of thick mounting card slightly larger than the folded kitchen rolls and one the same width as the other two and slightly thicker than the amount of kitchen rolls you are using for the spine.
using a sharp needle and thread attach the card tubes through the small piece of card going over the fold like book binders and then attach with glue to a piece of sued slighly larger all the way round by half an inch leaving a small 1/8th gap for creases on the spine.
Line the inside with heavy paper and decorate.
attach a small toggle an a loop of sued to tie around the book to hold it together.
