Well... what do I make? I make books. Lots of books. So I thought a few minutes and came up with a book idea that would say Chloride, would be cheap to make, would be fast to make, and would look nice. We have quite a nice collection of old photos from Chloride (which is, by the way, the oldest continuously inhabited mining town in Arizona). The picture of a bunch of miners arranged outside the entrance to the Flores mine is my favorite.
I sized the photo and printed it out on beige cardstock. I folded nine sheets of text paper in half, then had to trim about 1/4" off the fore edge so the book block would not be wider than the cover. I nested the pages inside the cover, poked three holes in the whole bunch, stitched them together with a pamphlet stitch with brown hemp cord. I tied off at the top with a tail long enough to tie on a dangling flintstone arrowhead.
It took me about 10 minutes to find the photo, size it, tweak the contrast and sepia color, and print out six copies. It took about another 30-40 minutes to fold, trim and stitch all six copies and tie on the arrowheads. I ended up with five books for the gift baskets and one more for today's book here.
So I really made six books today, but I'm only counting one (which means I still have a few to make up).
