How to Make a Chapbook

Here’s a great way to make a handmade poetry chapbook using the YourStory thermal book binder (and laminating) machine. This was the first time I had used a thermal machine of this sort to make books. Prior to this I’ve only used a glue gun, or just made books using the “saddle stich” (or, staple bound) method.

Moreover, I made this video using the WeVideo mobile app. I’m trying to gain skills making good quality videos using mobile apps, and of course, my Nikon video camera and video software.

Mom’s Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my mom’s birthday, today. Some of the ink from the signatures bled through to the front. I’m taking notes on how to make better handmade greeting cards.

Finally Started Making Greeting Cards

image

Finally started making prototypes for my #handmade #greetingcard company. Today, I worked with ink designs on textured and colored stock papers for saying “Thank You”, and welcoming new babies. Very fun:-) A little messy. But, ready for bulk stamping:-)

I’ve also made greeting cards using layered decorative papers and colored and patterned card stock to help people to say “I love you”, “I like you”, “kiss me”, “forgive me”, “have a good time”, and “cheer up and smile”. I can post these greeting cards later. #tdarris
