I just discovered this great tutorial on how to create an accordion folder using simple envelopes – what a great idea. I’ll have to try this tonight.
I discovered this great inspiring japanese book on bookbinding a while on etsy. It sold out before I could get a copy but luckily alittlegoodness recently found a copy for me. The instructions are in japenese, but there are lots of detailed drawings and the featured books are just amazing.
I’ve been really busy lately cutting, folding and gluing lots of pockets for my memo pockets, which is actually the thing I like least about making them. But now I have about 60 single pockets ready and I can enjoy the fun part – choosing paper for the covers, creating the covers and – best of all – putting everything together.
These are the first two I finished and I will be adding them to my etsy shop soon:
I must admit I never really liked the color orange nor did I had a thing for pink, but a few years ago I found these crazy orange and pink colored sneakers and I couldn’t resist this strange combination. I think I wore them for about 2 years uninterruptedly until they fell apart. So when I saw this paper I had to think about them and I couldn’t resist either. I’m also making a little blank book to correspond, so I might add them as a set.
I’m still looking around for more yellow prints for my yellow wall project and I’ve discovered some really nice ones.
And I already ordered this cool print by inkdesigner.
If you have any recommendations let me know.
Check out this amazing paper animation by Javan Ivey. It was created with a technique called “Stratastencil” using layers of handcut papers.
There’s also a timelaps video showing him cutting all those layers.

I just created a treasury on etsy with beautiful black and white items made from or partly with felt.
