Starbucks Anyone?

Book folding has  become a passion for me and believe it or not it requires little supplies and is much easier than it looks! Recently I made this book fold book for my friends birthday who loves Starbucks.  I even covered the book with a Starbucks bag.  As I folded each fold I wondered if the Starbucks logo had a meaning.  Turns out, in 1971, Starbucks (then a mere fledging coffee shop on the Seattle waterfront) was looking for a logo, something that would embody the seafaring history of its home city. … Heckler “pored over old marine books until he came up with a logo based on an old 16th-century Norse woodcut: a two-tailed mermaid.”  So now you know!

2018_09_13IMG_3365

Todays card is an alternate design for the Stampin Up April 2018 My Paper Pumkin Kit – You;re My Anchor.  I Punched a hole in the box lid from the kit and then added left over elements from the kit to create a card that fold flat to fit in an envelope.

Spring Book Bouquet

2018_06_24IMG_3221 Here is one of my latest book folding creations.  I took the class at a local bookstore and what a great result.  The flowers were made from recycled flyers and the book was an old encyclopedia.  I added some green leaves cut using various leaf framelits and punches.
