The Paper Girls Challenge #41 - Sew It On

 Back in June I took a class at Studio Calico where we transformed old books into a mini album. I thought it would be fun to show some of the stitching I did on some of the pages I made for this album. The idea on the right page came from a fellow Paper Girl Charissa. For my page I removed  the page I wanted to sew on with an exacto knife close to the binding Then I sewed the punched circles onto the page. Afterwards I glued the page to the page in the book behind it and used a bone folder to tuck the torn edge in towards the spine.

Close up of the stitching.
 Thought I'd a a little extra touch of stitching to the opposite page. For this one I just left the page intact and carefully fed the single page through my machine.

One thing to note is if you also use your sewing machine for actually sewing cloth - sewing on paper will dull your needle so make sure you change your needle before sewing on cloth again.
