Covers are matboard, covered with a heavy mulberry gold fleck inclusion paper.

The book block is a running stitch with wrapped stitch binding to create the legs done in a 4 ply waxed line thread "aqua blue" over "black". The holes have blue eyelets.

The signatures are created with LBS End Sheet paper from Columbia Mills.

There are  8 signatures of 4 folios (16 pages per signature or total of 128 pages).

I die cut the tag (Spellbinder's "Grommet Tag" set) from black cardstock, adhering it to the cover with adhesive and blue brads. Wrote in the words with a pointed pen, Copic opaque white ink/H2 (For the Birds) in my "Fickle" font.

Die cut the bird cage (Impression Obsession) from black cardstock and adhered to card, cutting off part of the chain and repositioning it to appear longer...

Covered the inside covers with beautiful bird painted scrapbook paper.
