Postcards By the Sea!

Working with papers you have made yourself is rewarding.  When you tell people you made the paper yourself they are amazed. There are so many things you can add to the paper you make and so many ways to use your handmade papers. 
Today I am using more of my blue handmade paper.  Yes, I made it with the Arnold Grummer's Papermill Complete Kit

I cannot stress enough how easy it is to make paper with the Arnold Grummer's Papermill Complete Kit.  If you have never made paper with Arnold Grummer's Papermill Complete Kit, be sure to watch the Basic Paper Making video. Making paper is so much easier than you ever thought.

Using the Arnold Grummer's Accordion Fold Book I made my Postcards by the Sea book!


TO MAKE THE BOOK
First, cover the chipboard front and back with hand made paper.  Adhere ribbon to the back cover of the accordion book.

Spritz the accordion pages with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Crushed Shells and Mister Huey's Color Mist - Seafoam.  Ink edges with brown ink.


Create pockets with handmade papers.  The pockets can be on the diagonal or across the bottom of a page of the book.

Add Graphic 45 By the Sea papers to the accordion book.

Attach the front and back covers to the accordion.  Add shells and Stickles to the front cover.
