Graphic45 Matchbox Cover Book

Hi everyone!

I love making books - all kinds and all shapes.  Here's one that I made from the cover of the G45 8X8 matchbook Box.  The sturdiness of the box cover makes for a super durable album cover.

The pages of the album are sewn into the spine. And I cut a hole in the spine so I could see the lovely different patterns of the papers.

If you'd like to have fun building this book.  Here's a tutorial that you might find helpful. :)

Gorgeous and so very clever. I have admired Sharon's work for years. Not only is she super creative, she's also very generous with her knowledge. Love, love, lover her work!
