Japanese book binding

We folded the paper and then dipped the corners or edges into pigments.unfolded and voila! All different effects. The first two were a cheaper paper to get the hang of it and then we used good mulberry paper.

Sakura then showed us how to make a book using traditional Japanese book binding methods. I split my paper to make one with less pages for me and the other for Rosie to keep her Japanese memories or to plan in.

Fabulous effects from the pigments, Jo! Remember the various Japanese bindings from college, must have some samples somewhere. Bet Rosie will love her book.
