ID: Piano Hinge Book #5 "Red Star"

Journal only (closed): approx 3.75"w x 7.25 x 3.4" thk.
Journal only (open): approx 7.5"w x 7.5"h
approx 9.5"h from top of hanging beaded loop to bottom of star points

This is my fifth piano hinge book. The difference with this one are the signature pages again. I wanted to use another method to create more pages for each signature besides gluing which can add excess bulk to heavier weight papers. So I cut out half stars on the pages I wanted attached to the main signature then added a smaller red metallic sticker to the center of each of these stars to emphasize the star shape. I also off set the attached pages as in the piano hinge #4. I used a gold parchment stationary paper and edged the spine of each signature with red marker.

I used red and gold mizuhiki cords and some red metallic embroidery floss. I added various wood and metal, red and gold beads and a star bead. 



I used a regular type of book board  and covered it with a gold embossed star on red paper which I purchased from Quietfire Design. On the edges of the covers I thermal embossed them with a red embossing powder.

This is a 5 signature book.
