Matchbox Book

These are photos of a mini sketchbook I made from instructions found in the book, Book Play by Margaret Couch Cogswell.

The paper of the box was taken from newsprint that I used to cover my art table. It has splotches of paint, hand-carved stamp "tests" and also felt tip pen marks when I was checking to see if they still had ink in them.

 The little book is made from past paper I made and has a little accent from the newsprint paper. It is bound with a pamphlet stitch. It was pretty easy and fun to make.
