Sixty Plus Two
Topic: Books

For a ladies' retreat coming up I needed to make 60 little books for the ladies to take notes during the sessions. I've made these books before but they always used a cutout/insert of a triangle. We wanted a star on the cover because of our theme so I was going to use my new star punch (this is actually why I bought it).

I made a couple of models using different materials so I could see how the star would fit. It did NOT fit on the one made of denim print paper so I finished it up with a plain circle punch and glued a gold button in place. Then I did the front fold taller on the next sample so there would be room for the star and changed up the way the inside of the cover is finished to make it cleaner.


When I got the logistics sorted out I wrote out the steps and set up an assembly line for myself and completed the 60 books for the retreat. I cut up two large gold holographic bags from the dollar store for the inserts behind the star punch outs.


Each book has 6 sheets of paper which, when folded and stitched into the center, gives 24 writing surfaces.
