A while back I did a post on ‘things with buttons’ and featured this teeny little button book: So cute! And such a great idea. I’ve been wanting to make my own for quite some time now and I finally got round to it. The idea I had for it is taken from something I’ve […]

When my friend Helen won the letter writing competition I recently ran, I assumed that she’d commission me to do robots on her prize of a customised letter and envelope set. However, when I asked what she’d like, she said she’d need some time to think about it. After a few days she got back […]

I just googled, looked at various tutorials, then played around with an old magazine – the chunkiest I could find! Found the middle then worked my way out, alternating the types of folds evenly.
