Paperclipping 115 – Minibooks from Authentic Items

Get the Flash Player to see this video.

Today’s episode is for the Paperclipping Members. If you want to commemorate the culture of a place you’ve visited or plan to visit, you might want to consider the topic of this episode: create a book with an authentic item that portrays the place and culture. Below are a few pictures of my own book, which I made to showcase photos and items from Rocky Point, Mexico…

    Such a clever idea Noell, but I must say my jaw almost dropped a foot when you covered up those chipboard flourishes! I thought they were too nice to hide. Do you know what company made them?

    Loved the simple detail throughout the mini book!

    The English style of those flourishes didn't go with my Mexican book. ;)

    I have a lot more of them so I wasn't worried about it, lol. They're made by
    Maya Road and they come in those cute silver lunch boxes.

    Wow, Noell, this is really spectacular and unique. You really have a great eye for how to mix things up and I love that you totally were willing to share your process so fully with us. It's always affirming to see someone wonder the same things I do when creating and it encourages me to be even braver! Thanks!

    Thank you! I have been helped in the same way by others and totally agree!
    We're all just trying things, right? It's an experiment.
