Altered Board Books..

I've been asked to show how to make altered board books
to a Country Women's Institute in Te Pahu
tomorrow. This is where I lived on the farm.
It will be nice to catch up with friends.

I've made little books like this before
but given them away as gifts.'s busy busy yesterday and today making some examples.
The pages in this little book were so thick I have been able to cut
shapes into them.

I've been planning to make
a Book of Hours for sometime.
So that's my plan for today..
by this evening this little book and the others will be finished!!

  1. This is fascinating, I am looking forward to seeing the finished books.

  2. Me too! This looks really interesting!

  3. I've never seen anything like this! You're so talented, Joan! I can't wait to see the finished products. You're gonna be a hit at the County Wonman's Institute with such a gorgeous art project!

  4. I'm reading the cart before the horse today...but, OMG, you've got to find a way to share this book...a publisher perhaps wouldn't use wood but think of all the safe possibilities and how many kids would enjoy a book like this??? You are sooooo talented, Joan!
