A Book of Paintings

My daughter, Tessa LOVES to paint and draw! For the last few months I've been having her paint on sketchbook paper that's pretty good quality. The paper is long, 12 x 24 inches. She's done so many- and they are painted on both sides. Now I get to make them into a book for her! I'm so excited.

I have her painting a big sheet for the covers now. I'm going to sew the book with the spine exposed so those pretty painted edges will show. I'll post photos when I'm putting it together!


  1. Wow that looks so much fun! I can't wait to see how it turns out 😊 Makes me wish my boys were small again so I could get to play...maybe I'll just have to wait until I have grandchildren!

  2. Oh, I do hope you get to play with grandchildren! Tessa has had so much fun making art and now I get to have fun making a book. I was thinking that this binding style would only work for abstract paintings, but you could do it a little different for older kids who were doing recognizable drawings. Making books is always fun for me however it happens! :)
