A Little Birthday Book





This was a little mini book I made for Jo's birthday. I love how it turned out and it is fairly small and dainty. I used a page from a book which is over 80 yrs old and a colour catcher from the washing machine as the cover dyed with tea.

That is so beautiful. Gifts are so much nicer when there's actually some thought put into them, and a totally handmade gift is so precious. The recipient is sure to love this amazing piece of art.

All your works are so wonderful and you also have these nice subtitles. I did like the birthdaybook here very much but the fabric-arch is so delicate as well!
