When I alter a book, I think inside the box




The first attempt I made at altering a book into a box turned out to be more complicated than I'd initially thought. Thank goodness for K&Cos Que Sera Sera papers. I've said it before and I'll say it again, they cover a multitude of mistakes, or in this case, joins. I took a small chunky book and cut a niche out of the pages. I then covered it all in patterned paper but ran into so many problems with the hinge inside. Rips, smudges, creases, tears and tears with tantrums thrown in for good measure. Finally worked out but I figured there must be an easier way. And there was....more tomorrow.
