Hello Creatives! Kirsten here with another bookmaking adventure using the exclusive April StencilClub selections by Mary Beth Shaw and Mary C. Nasser! They are gorgeous and I really like the different and complementary designs. One stencil is organic and the other is bold and graphic.
I was inspired to create an accordion book to showcase both design styles. As I perused my various bookbinding books I found myself drawn to the Venetian Blind book structure. (Alisa Golden shared this structure in her book, Painted Pages, and I highly suggest you check it out.) It is an accordion book that has a cord and bead for a closure.
I chose to have eight panels in my books but you could do as little as four or have more than eight. Use this structure as a card, an artist book or a portfolio showcasing your artworks. The options are endless!
You can check out all the details in my video tutorial below!
