Mini Album

Today has been pretty crazy so I decided to go back to one of my older SEI kits and do another project from it. I pulled out the Spring 2010 “In the treetops” collection. I had made all the cards so I decided to make the mini album. The kit refers to the album as “things I love.” I thought that was perfect with Valentines day and an anniversary coming up. Today I just followed the directions and put the album together. I’ll make it my own later.

Technical specs: the kit recommends sewing the album together. I decided to give hand-binding a try. I used my paper piercer to make guide holes every 1/2” on all the pages. As I sewed using hemp, I pierced the holes again making them large enough for my string. I sewed in and out in one direction, looped over the top, and sewed in and out on the opposite direction. I secured the last outside loop with a double knot. I highly recommend keeping your paper piercer handy as well as scissors to cut off the tip when the string gets too loose.
