For the last two years, I’ve supported my fiance during the Extra Life Gaming Marathon by binding books during his marathon gaming run. He plays video games for 24 hours, while I bind books with him during the 24 hour span. The books I bind are given away to donors and watchers of his live stream. This year I’m planning on binding again, hopefully making some envelope books to give away. The envelope books will be business card size (envelopes 2.5 x 3.75″). I’ll make as many envelopes and envelope books as I can!
The finished envelope books will be sent out tomorrow, November 19th!
Here’s some shots of the build up process:
Scoring the paper and punching out, to hand make the envelopes
Folding and completing the envelops
Each one had it’s own card
Sewing up the envelopes to make the blocks
Hot stamping the end pages with my fancy logo
Testing out a mock cover. Each donor could choose their own color.
