cat--a 4x5ish origami book

"You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats."  --Colonial Proverb

Yes, yes, it's another origami wallet fold book with stitched cover--this one is a little over 4 x 5 inches.  What can I say, those interior pockets are super for holding lots of tags, and this one has plenty, each with a quote about cats, of course.  Actually, each tag has two quotes, one on each side.  And I do like tags--my favorites are from the Altered Art Ephemera Pack at Altered Pages.

I painted each chipboard kitty to look like one our cats--this is Daisy;  she likes to eat moths.
All the chipboard cats are from Leaky Shed Studios--you can see more of the ones in my book at THIS POST, or if you want to see, ahem, "naked" kitties, you'll find them HERE.   I'm trying to work myself up to make a tutorial for this type of book . . . but don't hold your breath, I'll let you know . . . here are some of my other books made in this same manner:
I Am Free
one with Rogue Redhead Designs
one for my daughter and Hydrangea Hippo
another one--lots of different tags, travel theme

Have a great Saturday!
