here is the "after" shot of my finished leather book! i've always wanted to make one, and i'm so glad that i finally did...i really love it!
this book began as a kit that i ordered from volcano arts (see yesterday's post). it came with the leather, paper for the inside, waxed linen thread, a small button, and instructions. as you can see, i made a few changes. first, i cut a curve on the outside flap to add more interest...i liked the idea of it "hugging" the fabulous vintage coat button that i wanted to use for the closure (replacing the button from the kit was the second change). i also used a small silver spiral charm to finish off the closure cord.
