Here are a few pictures I took:
|All the supplies laid out|
|Cutting the book board|
|Pages cut and folded and setting in the press for flattening|
|Press set. Will remove and stitch pages this evening|
1. This book board was easier to cut with a hearty pair of scissors than the exacto blade method. I did cut it with the box cutter, but had to trim it more due to rough edges. I grabbed a pair of scissors and found they performed much better. Pictures of the cover cut out later when i get to book assembly.
2. I am wishing i had a paper cutter for cutting the pages. Would have sped up the process of cutting the parchment.
3. I am grateful for my friend MJ who gave me the book press on long term loan as it is an immense help. Its actually a flower press but works great for this purpose as well.
Tonight...page stitching, book assembly...and, of course, more photographs!
