Easy-to-add flaps, doors, pockets, and pulls for altered books.
Interactive doors, pockets, and pulls add a little kinetic energy to any altered book. Not only do they invite the reader to fully investigate the book, but they offer the reward of a little "reveal" when the door or flap is opened or the tag pulled. Here are several simple pockets, flaps, doors, and pulls for you to consider adding to your next altered book project. These are all from an altered book featuring baby-to-older-child photos:
|flap hinged at the top|
|large door hinged on right side|
|foldover, envelope type reveal|
|stitched pocket, opening at the side, with tag reveal|
March is altered book month here at the Altered Arts Magazine blog, so be sure to check back often for more altered book ideas.
P. S. If you like the idea of flaps, doors, pockets, and pulls, I have several more from this same book posted at my blog: easily amused, hard to offend--Little surprises around every corner . . .
Have a wonderful weekend,
