something for him..

i have completed another book. this one took ALMOST a month.
i am super excited with the final results. i made it for my friend chad.
i gave it to him last night after i picked him up from the airport.
he was half awake. i was too excited to wait to give it to him though..

the book is created from an existing book that i ripped apart.
i separated all the pages..and then once each one was completed i sewed 2 pages together..
then for the cover/back, i peeled the photo/images off and i
ripped the original spine out and used a ribbon to widen the spine..
after that i began to sew each set of pages in, but then i got over that..
i decided to just hot glue them in..worked perf.

shall we begin...?

front cover..using scraps of things and old keys.
i've had a collection of found keys and old keys for awhile.
glad i got to put them on something...
this book belongs to chad p.
there is a napkin i drew on like a year ago.
kind of in love with it being in this book..

and there is a price tag to a bike that isn't mine..
