|Tied up neatly...|
I hadn't made a sketchbook since A Level art when someone taught us all how to do it. Again, it appealed to my need for precision and straight lines -there was a good deal of measuring and pressing pages flat. So here's another one -A6 size, card mounted and ribbon tied shut. The pages are accordion which I've always thought was a cool -a sketch can spin over several pages or just stick to one. They can also cope with lots of tickets and stubs being glued in. All you need is a ruler, a craft knife, some PVA (glues like hell, never puts up a fight) and some double-sided sticky tape for sturdier fabric corners. I used a post-card to draw around as a size guide then measured 5mm wider again to allow for the cover to be a smidge bigger than the paper inside (wrunkled edges = insomnia). I pinched my little man's rolling pin from his play kitchen to make sure everything glued flat and was going to stay put...job done.
