Skewer Bound Book

Last night in the workshop I made a prototype of this just to see how I managed making it… and today I made another one live on Ustream and also remembered to hit the Record Button!

Ustream Tutorial Here

The Blue Book (made last night)

and a look at the binding… made with bamboo skewers 🙂

Then onto the book made this morning, which is the one featured on the Ustream tutorial..

I used My Minds Eye Life Stories Patterned paper for the covers and some of the diecut embelishments from the kit

  1. Ok, mine is not as finished but I am quite happy that at least I was able to finish the project with you! I needed wider/deeper V-spaces as you need the space to move the skewer around, the more signatures you connect. Great project, Sarah! 🙂

  2. These are completely gorgeous! ‘m really wanting to start making some books now. I made an easy one with just one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper, but I’m going to have watch your video!!!!!! I have Making Handmade Books by Alisa Golden from the library. I’m thinking of leaving my hubby a hint, hint for Christmas!
