He loves me.

I made a book that's also a daisy. It's not very big, but it contains all of my heart and my love. Hope you'll like! :D




To address the many requests for tutorials, I did not invent the folding technique used for this book. This structure is commonly referred to as the 'star book' and I learned it in my bookbinding class. I came up with the idea of turning it into a daisy and did this by rounding off the corners and using more pages (9) instead of the usual 5 or 6.

There are many tutorials online that you can find if you want to learn how to make your own star book. These are the best ones that I had found:

  15. Thank you Ciaee so much for the tip I will buy one, I made everythink right the 9 petals, the braid and the cover, now I know about the holes the only doubt is if you glue a ribbon in the covers to keep it together like the tutorial? because just with the braid doesn't work

  16. Hey, I didn't use a ribbon like in the tutorials although I'd imagine the ribbon to work just as well, if not even better. I merely punched a hole in both the top and bottom covers and braided a string onto each cover.

  17. Thank you again I loved the string braided I will tried your way, I just thought you used the ribbon in the other side to fixed better the book. when mine is ready I will send you a picture... THANKS
