Pamphlet Stitch Books

Using the same method that I used in these books, I made some more.  Mostly made with beer 6-pack holders, these books were a blast to make.  For this set of books, I actually added closures, which I had not figured out during my previous session.  Each one has 28 pages and was completed with the simple-to-do pamphlet stitch.


I sewed a button on each of these 2 books above and used coordinating ribbon to close them.  Fun, huh?


The 2 books on the left in this photo use elastic closures and the 10% off book has a button/ribbon closure. 

The most fun part of these books is choosing the coordinating papers, buttons and ribbons.  I also love that these 6-pack holders have found new lives and are not destined for the landfill or the recycle pile.
 
I still have plans to make some books from Monopoly property cards!
