Daydreaming on Paper. Sewing the Signatures Here is the guide that you will follow while sewing your signatures together.

Daydreaming on Paper

The letters A - F designate each signature, and the numbers indicate the order in which you will sew. Note that some holes have two numbers around them. This indicates that the same hole is both number 3 and number 7, for example. Step 1: Push the needle into the first signature at point 1 from the outside. Step 2: Push through point 2 from the inside out, then go over to point 3, and then under and out through point 4. Step 3: Pick up the second signature (B) and hold it below the first signature (A). Step 4: Now join signature B to signature A by entering signature A at point 7. Step 5: Pick up the third signature (C) and hold it below the first two. Step 6: Loop the thread around the thread between points 4 and 5. Step 7: Loop the thread around the thread between points 10 and 11.

Step 8: Loop the thread around the thread between points 16 and 17. Congratulations! Finishing the Book. Creative Kismet » Blog Archive » little guiding stars. Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self.

Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. I made 60 of them, enough to last me the whole year if I open one a week, plus a few extra just in case. I used 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper and cut 1/2 x 12″ strips, then followed the video HERE*. *UPDATE! Be Sociable, Share! How About Orange. Cereal Box Books.
