Short Wooden Book with Illuminated SpineOnce again, I was compelled to create a book using heart-shaped pieces of papercloth. Hearts are not typically my go-to shape, but I suppose I just need to go with it. (R.I.P. Robin Williams)
This is another 5" X 5" book, bound with the "Secret Belgian Binding." It has plywood covers and is sewn together on waxed linen thread.
While making the spine, I replicated the process that I used in an earlier blog post. This time, I decided to add LEDs and a switch to it.
(View my Magisto video below.)
In this model, I figured out that Velcro is a great way to keep a battery flap from popping open. I used a paper battery holder and a 3V battery for this project.
I would prefer this book if the covers were also illuminated.
