My sister got married and my project is making a book for her wedding present.
It was spontaneous, I had an empty notebook with me of reasonable quality and I started lettering the cover.
Then I ended up punching holes in the cover and tying a bouquet to it:
Laurel for long life; and
Lavender for a sweet smelling wife.
Will it work?
I don't know, I made it up.
I have a lots of photos to edit, print and stick in it. Mostly embarrassing ones I hope.
As well, I will do some more embellishing of the cover.
I will get some professional advice on reinforcing the spine and corners, especially seeing I had already ripped a section of the book out.
Don't worry, I have tied some nice ribbon around the string. There were left overs from decorations.
