CROSSED BINDING HANDMADE BOOK – BOTANICAL FLOWER ILLUSTRATIONS

SUCH AN INTERESTING BOOK BINDING TECHNIQUE – Cut the cover in 2 pieces & the strips interlock together to create the cover.  I like how the binding stitches show on the end of the book.  Illustration of flower parts & types.  Center page is black & is illustrated with night-blooming flowers.

JAPAN – HAPPY GIRL’S DAY!

HAPPY GIRL’S DAY! – I painted the wood Japanese Kokeshi dolls & made them origami paper clothes.  The cellophane bag contains Japanese doll cookies.  The fun thing about these cookies is that the doll design is on the cellophane and not on the cookies, which are really a round and oblong biscuit.  I love them so much.
