i just finished my latest coptic book structure. this one has the most beautiful collaged-look decorative paper...and i really love the bird that's featured center stage. and i got so involved in sewing the book together, that i completely forgot to add some other papers around each signature inside (of course, i noticed this omission after i was finished sewing the book together!). so, still wanting to add a little interest to the text pages, i decided to take my scraps, paper punches, needle, and thread, and sew some bits and pieces here and there throughout the book. i'm loving the end result...and it seems to have satisfied (for today) this crazy obsession i have for sewing on paper!
