365/13 + a super easy vintage craft.


I hated the book "Zone One".

So much so, that I made a thing out of it.

I don't have anywhere to hang it, yet.

Inspired by a project in Cathy Callahan's book "Vintage Craft Workshop".

Basically, all that I did was choose a clever way to fold the pages.

It took a few hours, but I did it while watching the movie "Daisies" on the suggestion of Pollyanna Cowgirl, so I was thoroughly entertained.

After all the pages were folded it was as simple as gluing the spine closed around a piece of super bulky yarn.

I really have to pick up a ceiling hook. Right now it's hanging from a thumbtack in my hallway.

Honestly, I didn't want anyone to have to read this book after me.

Did you read it? Did you like it?

So cool! Love your pom pom accent. I made a Christmas tree version of this project. Vintage craft workshop is my fave!
