Handmade Memory Book

Hi everyone…

Hope your all having a lovely weekend… it’s a bit of a wet weekend here in Scotland, in fact, it’s not stopped raining for 2 weeks!

This afternoon in the shed, I made this memory book, it’s this week’s DT project for Wild Orchid Crafts and also a tutorial for a fellow you tube crafter who had requested a video on how I make these books.

Instead of filling the book with paper, I created glassine bag pockets instead so that keepsake items can be stored.

The Youtube video can be viewed here  towards the end of the video you can see my Glue blooper!
