Asian Book - made from Index Cards

Front cover - background, sponged with brown, black and gold. Stamped and embossed 3 Asian symbols, the gold corners and the vertical ASIAN letters, added a gold ribbon, then attached the 3 symbols on top.
Back cover - Printed a "tea" design on to white card, added my details to the centre panel, carefully cut out and glued to the back.
I punched holes in each page 1/2 inch from top and bottom, bought some gold elastic, tied securely to make a band, poked the elastic through the holes back to front and placed the ends of a wooden skewer through the loops, made a neat and simple binding. Sent this my first altered book to Tracey M from Liverpool here in the UK.
