Quirky Dutch Summer

Quirky Dutch Summer is a series of weekly blogposts at Marit’s Paper World with inspiration and tutorials.
In week 6 Willy Duit showed us how to make a book with envelopes. I made it some time ago, but had no time to blog about it. Staining the envelopes with tea didn’t work, so I used tea dye ink to add some colour to my envelopes.
I bound my book with 3 wooden buttons.
the front
the back
I’m not sure what to put in the pockets of my book yet, time will tell!
I made pockets on the inside of the covers too.

I used postage stamps and napkins to decorate my book.


  1. Wat een lief envelop-boekje is het geworden Annet, en die 'tea dye' inkt is geweldig, dat effect is perfect!

    1. Dank je wel, Marit. Ik ben nog aan het bedenken hou ik mijn boekje ga vullen.
