Somehow I had to bind all those pages - 52 weeks in a year equates to 26 pages plus a cover, say I make two buttonholes in each page - that's 54 buttonholes! No way!!
I opted for rivets which proved just as much a pain as buttonholes, some folded over smoothly, some just went Blat! the blat ones I hope will remain hidden.
I then needed some small separation between the pages so they didn't pack down tightly together. I had some nylon macrame cord and thought of tying a knot in it between pages
I got half way through - pull the cord, tie a knot, pull the cord through some more - tie another knot - and decided it looked tacky
so it was - undo knot, pull cord through, undo another knot....
then I spied these almost flat wooden beads, I fallen for the colour at a bead show.
I scrapped the stiff macrame cord in favour of some bright blue Russian braid, I was reaching the home straight til I found the holes in the beads were just a tad small to feed the braid through smoothly, so it became - snip the end to a point, feed through the bead and snip the now ragged end to a point again -
you can see what I mean about a whopping big book!
I'll take a photo of the finished book tomorrow.
