Well I have managed to finish 4 of the 6 treasure booklets. These little items although have been a lot of fun to make, have gobbled up many hours of my time. 2 more to go. Today, I tried various ways to put them together, and decided I like this way the best after all.
Although I haven't counted there are about 45 - 50 hand decorated pieces of paper in each book. Most of them can be written/drawn/painted/collaged on, but a few are just decorative.
My initial idea was to wrap them up with a tea dyed strip of fabric. I don't want them tied in a bow though, as this looks to "pretty" compared to the rough and aged treasure look I wanted. SO ...now I am not too sure about the fabric strips.
My question is - should I just wrap the fabric around the book and secure it with a clip or pin? Should I tie a piece of twine around it loosely, so it can be easily slipped on and off? Or is my original idea of a piece of fabric loosely tied around the booklet the way to go? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
