Keepsake book: studio carta, designskool collaborative no. 3
Spring has sprung! And with it weddings, babies, and all things "new beginnings." In celebration of this season of rebirth, for our 3rd project Justine and I chose to resurrect one of my old talents: bookmaking. (In fact it was the pursuit of elegant bindings for my books that led me to begin importing Italian ribbons in the first place!)
I studied and taught at Minnesota Center for Book Arts, but this keepsake book is easy enough for anyone to tackle. Success is in the supplies. Made with beautiful Rifle Paper Co. Gift Wrap and Studio Carta Cotton Ribbon, our keepsake book is perfect for storing momentos from spring's (or any season's) most treasured events.
Step 8: Using a small chisel or utility knife, hammer or cut the four slits you just measured. Repeat on the other piece of cardboard.
