    Final Alice Book; New Candlesticks PLUS Accordion Book Sale!

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Back in Stock, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, The Mad Hatter's Tea Party Kit

    The end of Alice?! I’m talking rubbish — Alice is eternal! It’s just the last newsletter of this month of Alice projects!

    And we’re ending the month with a delightful hand-made book by Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas! I’ll start by reviewing that artwork, then move on to what’s new this week, and an Albums & Accordion Books Sale inspired by the artwork!

    I love the mix of sizes of Mad Hatters (and there are other characters in there, too) from the Alice Matchbox Facade Set and Ticket Journal Alice Covers Set that Rhonda used for the pages of her book. Here’s a bit of text from Rhonda’s blog post to start the tour:

    Here’s an over-the-top project I did using many of the new goodies from the April Alpha Stamps
    Kit titled, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Loving Alice like I do, I took advantage of many of the other like-themed items that are available for this oh so cute book.

    One of my current obsessions is creating my own books. I dye vintage and new papers, gather cool items from long ago, and sew them all into a book. So of course, I had to give this a go using all of these fab chipboard “pages” of characters known to Alice.

    There are lots of great artist that share tutorials on different stitching techniques on line. I liked this one by Sea Lemon, DIY Kettle Stitch Bookbinding Tutorial (warning: video link). It was very easy to follow along and seeing the task being done up close really helps me to absorb and learn. It looks complicated when you see an example like the one above, but trust me. Once you get the jest of it, it is VERY easy to complete.

    You’ll need to visit Rhonda’s blog post to see more of how the pages fold out, but you can see a preview of the mix of sizes plus the stitching in the wide photo below. And here’s Rhonda’s Supply List with all those colorful parts!
