Another inspiring project sent to us from Arounna Khounnoraj of bookhou.
I really like this project – it’s a nice way to add colour to your book shelf or give new life to an old favourite.
What you will need:
decorative paper (shown in picture are Chiyogami, printed Nepalese papers, and Carta Varese papers from Italy.)
Holding the book pages, lay the front and back cover flat in the centre of the decorative paper (on plain side) and take your pencil to trace.
allow about 2-3 inches around the perimeter of the outline drawn – any extra use your xacto knife and ruler to trim. Take your folding bone and score along the top and bottom lines of the pencil lines
fold over the flaps
place the book on top of the paper and fold over the flap for the front and back of the book tucking them in under each cover.
once the book is placed inside the paper rub your fingers all around to crease the edges.
