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!

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.

Book folding vase

2018_05_01IMG_3221 I have found a new love!  The love of book folding.  Today’s post is one of my favorite pieces yet.  It started out as an old encyclopedia and then it turned into a vase of beautiful flowers. It is a perfect addition for a mantle or shelf and can be completed in just a few short hours.  The flowers were hand made using recycled color flyers and adhered with a glue gun,  I added the leaves cut from the flyer with the  Leaflets Framelit.
