Make Your Own Book Kits are an ideal way to begin making your own creative books.
I have set up a new blog to record the work made from these kits http://diybookit.wordpress.com
Once you have collected enough material, you may want to invest in some card or paper, again this can be collected over a period of time. I teach regular workshops @36 Lime Street and use something called ‘a rummage box’ which contains a selection of special papers, card, slips and sachet that I am not sure what I can do with, so it goes in the rummage box for a course participant to use and find inspiration.
For a while now I have wanted to get feedback from people who buy the kits to find out what exactly they are doing with them – so over the Christmas period, I had a couple of emails from individuals who were bought the packs for Christmas. This started me thinking this new blog would be a great way to collate what kind of work people are making and inspire new ideas, providing a showcase to share ideas. So, if you have been bought a pack and have made some work email me firstname.lastname@example.org with your finished products or if you are thinking of making something, but not sure how to start check out the DIY Make Your Own Book Kit blog.
