Paper Bird Houses

 Paper bird houses - made from 21 identical sheets of vintage book paper. Love the way this retro exercise book translates into Toile-de-Jouy-like houses. They were launched at the i♥market this past Saturday. [Botanical book houses and 101 Dalmatian ones too!] Thanks...

My Bags are Packed –

An interpretation of a vintage drawing I loved, done with book paper.   It's apt to show it to you today, because this weekend we fly off to Israel and then to the UK.  So my bag is packed and I have only 1 very last minute paper flower order to complete before we...

Paper Tube Hearts

I love working with paper - and this is my latest project! Tubes of vintage book paper connected into a heart shape! And I'm loving the large wooden chopping board I sourced at the SPCA last week. I scrubbed it clean, and now it makes a good background for pics! How...

Bibliogami Hints

I am working hard at increasing my stock of Bibliogami Books, so that I can sell them online as well as at the Market! Some people ask me - What do you actually do with them? Well - It is difficult to read them, but their typographical beauty shows off well... Stacked...

How to Fold Those Books!

Finally I have put together a tut on How to Fold those Books! I usually use old novels, but this time I used a larger outdated buyers guide. The pages are lovely and crisp and firm enough to support the larger book. It looks good in a vase or just standing on it's...

Table Tut!

I decided to try my hand at making my own Folded Magazine Side Table after showing this one last week. It is quite delightful and adds a dose of colour and humour to my living room! I topped it with a display of vintage silver dishes. I love it when my home evokes...

Literary Folds

A good way to beautifully use some old paperbacks! I made these table decorations from vintage books! I don't read novels, so I had to buy some from a charity shop. I giggled inwardly when the shop assistant kindly pointed out to me that I had bought 3 copies of the...
