The joy of boxes

I spent most of yesterday working on a box I got given which had held some tins of biscuits but they had gone and the box wasn’t needed so I thought it would make an excellent home for all the little books I’ve been making lately.

They are quite fragile and work as a collection so I thought they needed a permanent home together…

There was space for some other ones too and room for a top layer. Very satisfying indeed!

A new fold

I spent a day this week with a lovely friend in York who I hadn’t seen for a while. She is also mad about paper and making books. She showed me a leaflet she had picked up with a very interesting structure created by folds. So I had to replicate it because I knew if I had only drawn the instructions I would have forgotten how to do it by the time I got home! She also introduced me to some lovely watercolours I am going to have to track down, took me to a museum, cooked some delicious food and took me to a great charity shop…all in all a great day out.
