My craft journey has taken me down a different road lately. I have joined a weekly course in Cartonnage. I'm not sure how that translates into English but it is all about making things out of cardboard such as letter racks, boxes and notebooks etc. I have long wanted to make my own book from scratch, including the inside pages but this was my first project and I have to say I really enjoyed making it and I'm happy with the result. It measures 12cm square (just under 5 inches)and the paper is an Italian design called Fiorentina. I bought a little bloc of notes for the inside and recovered it in matching paper. Hoping to make a few more now that I have the hang of it!
