Handmade books, boxes and booXes

I finally finished the 
design templates for
 BooXes
and the little books and 
handmade papers that go inside.

The little red book, Truth 7 that goes inside Ghost Whisperer booX.

I still need to work out a few more details,
but for the most part, I was able to achieve
the rounded book structures I set out to create.

I found traditional binder's board and 
hardboard the best
materials for my 3D book structures.
They were easy to carve and I 
could add a lot of paints and textures
without compromising their shapes.
