For Thing-a-Day 3 I made these fake mokeskine cahiers with scrap cardboard from work, some white paper, a staple/stitch machine at work, and some creative juices of my own. These are similar to some other books I made that have all sorts of random papers inside.
I rounded all the corners of the covers and inside pages with a paper punch and then used my xyron to adhere different things to the covers. Each book has a rubberband around it to keep it safe. The top left is black drawing paper I cut out in a chevron pattern. Top right a real polaroid I took of a huddle of garden gnomes. Bottom left, some watercolor that dabbled on and then cut out. And, the bottom right are some vintage yearbook pictures. Get a load of Kathleen’s romantic distant gaze.
