In the Pink: A Flag Birthday Book

In the Pink:

WEBaRecently,  I had the opportunity to create a mostly pink book for a very special soon to be seven year old.

WEBdI used tagboard, a rubbery, easy to cut material, ribbon, stickers, and fun little cards contained in a gift from a friend. Fun stuff!

WEBbI made a “flag book” structure, and embellished it. Step by step.

WEBfThe book can be opened “traditionally”, moving from left to right by turning the flag pages attached to its accordion-folded spine.

WEBgThe flag book can also be opened by pulling the front and back covers away from each other, to reveal

WEBhthe pattern created by how the flag pages are placed.

WEBiWords, letters, numbers, images, colors, and textures,

WEBjcombine to create a magical message of love, and

WEBkcelebration.

WEBeBook backs can be as important as their fronts. Both front and back book covers are attached to the folded accordion spine.

When we reach the end…it is time to go back to the beginning…and find something new.
