Slipcase Week - Day 4: The Narrow House

Making the slipcase for the Narrow House book was a bit more complex than some of the others and took a bit paper engineering to make the shape of the case match slope of the roof. But it was well worth the effort to create this uniquely shaped case.

Slipcase Week - Day 3: The Little Books of Fear

Today features a set of books each made for the Month of Fear blog. Since both are about my fears, I decided to made them into their own little series, drawing inspiration from the set of Golden Books I had growing up.

Slipcase Week - Day 1: The Homeowners Guide to Household Demons

This week I'm going to be showcasing some of the slipcases I've made for my books and on Friday I will post a tutorial on how to make them yourself. Slipcases are fantastic because they are easy to make, fun to decorate, and they help protect your books from every day wear and tear.

This slipcase I made for my Month of Fear book: Homeowners Guide to Household Demons. It's made from a stiff screen printed paper with a simple paper cut out and hand lettering.
