Craft: Storybook mash-up!!

May 20, 2007

You’ll never guess the ending of this story book mash up. Tear up some pretty picture books, a couple of microwave cooking ones and a 70’s pattern book and shuffle them like a stack of cards to make your very own story book. Grab your UHU glue and cut and paste pics and text in a Devil may care fashion. To make sense of the mess use a bit of Letraset or your best handwriting to tell a tale of your own.

My hot tip is to go to the op-shop and head for the hard backs. Dust jackets can conceal some very pretty covers like the one I found below. In lieu of bookbinding skills a dainty belt from Nanna’s ‘Day at the races’ frock holds all the pages together.

    wouldn’t you freak out if you were randomly looking at this blog and the photo of that little girl (from the pattern book?) was you.
