Valentine's Day Giveaway

This Valentine book is a recent attempt at making a heart-shaped book with a limp leather wrap-around cover. I've decided to give it away. Just leave a comment here with this post before the end of the day on Feb 5th. Then on Feb 6th, I will put all the names in a big barrel (or maybe just a little bowl) and then one person's name will be picked.



The cover is limp red leather and it has about 30 heart-shaped sheets of paper. It is bound with a simple Japanese-style stab binding. A narrow leather strap and decorative Valentine ribbon are attached to the cover and can be tied to keep the cover in place. The book is about 16cm wide (6.5").

I was experimenting when I made this book so it is certainly not perfect. In fact, it is kinda floppy. But when the strap and ribbons are tied up nice, it still looks purrrdy!

{Feb. 6th Edit: I put all the commenters' names in a bowl and Hubby selected one for me. Congratulations to Uli!}

Looks very good! Perhaps you just had a different idea? I find that books tend to turn into what 'they' want, no matter what I do!
