A month or so ago I made a little book, a "zine." It was fun to do and I envision making more. I have another in progress but, with my ever-shortening attention span, I've begun doing other things. But let me show you this book, my first. I kind of like how it turned out, even though I really was clueless about what I was doing at the time.

The zine was done on one side of a piece of paper, folded, cut once, then folded again.

One piece of paper, folded, with a little piece of abstract art in each section. Then you cut into one side, refold, and that's it! There are lots of instructions for doing this online, so I won't go into that here.

So then I figured I needed a pouch, a pocket, to keep my zine "safe." So here you go. A little glue, a button, and done! A fun project for these weird times.

  1. This is really cool, Carol! I love your collages and your color palette. And the pouch is a nice finishing touch.

  2. Thank you! Coming from you, that means a lot, you being the bookmaster that you are! My comment field is apparently up and working. People tell me they are leaving comments, but they never appear. I never see them. Must be your magic touch... Thanks again.

    1. I wrote my comment and previewed it and it seemed to disappear. So I re-entered it and just published and still did not see my comment. Then I assumed the comment about you moderating all comments meant that you reviewed them before they were actually posted.


I know it takes time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it when you do. Thanks! Due to major spam issues, all comments are moderated. Sorry about that . . .
