Let’s make some books, well, a book. You will hand make a book for your partner in the pocket-sized range. The book should be about 5" by 7" or there about. You can use an old book cover or make one yourself with book board. The cover and inside covers can be decorated in a theme on your partner’s list. The inside pages can be a mix of papers (like a junk journal/smash book) or sketch/watercolor/mixed media paper - again, you will follow your partner’s ideas and suggestions. The book should contain a minimum of 24
pages, but can contain more depending on the dimensions of your cover and spine. You should add two signatures, but again, depending on size and spine width, you can add more.
There should be a minimum of 5 to 7 added features like tuck spots, a flip-out or fold-out page, pockets, journal spots/cards, a translucent or transparent page or pocket, paper embellishments, a shaped page, a window page, or your favorite element to add into your journals.
A few more ideas: a list page, a “currently” page (what I’m reading, goals, glasses of water consumed), a black and white page, a coloring page, a collage background page, a gel printed page,
(I will add more ideas as I think of them)
