I've been playing with some cardboard lunch boxes that I recycled from the last day of school in June. I gelli printed some and I painted some with alcohol ink, then I was wondering what else I could do with the boxes. I looked around my studio, trying to think up some ideas and decided to make a book within the box.
|These are all of the boxes. You can see the original in lower left. Click on the pic to get a larger view.|
The box in lower right is my book box, the others are empty.
|You can see the sewing of the signatures here. I have 3 signatures and|
each signature has a cover of gelli printed file folder, folded and sewn.
|Another view of the spine.|
|I opened up the book so you can see my signatures and plain, recycled|
packing paper pages.
|Here is my book box, all closed up.|
Do you have any other ideas? I'd love to hear them.
