The other day before I signed up for a book swap using Japanese stab bindings. I wanted to try my hand at making the books using a few of the different bindings. For the swap we can use the basic stab binding or any of the other bindings. My books are small with deckled edges on the heavy weight paper pages.
I used book board covered in a pale yellow paper that I covered with printed oriental papers that I've had for years. I cut and glued the decorative paper to just the front covers. The front covers are hinged.

The books were easy and fun to create.
P.S...the other day I posted some clematis photos. This is my first open bloom of my double white clematis. This flower is from the normal looking bud. So pretty, don't you think?
After a downpour this morning I went out an took this photo of my single white clematis (Henryi) that is just starting to open. So far it doesn't look like the photo that came on the plant. Wonder if the green will go away as it opens further.
