Vintage Buttons find New Home



A few vintage buttons from my collection have found their way onto some new softcover sketchbooks. The covers are made with Saint Armand papers, one of my favourite papers to work with. They are made at La Papeterie Saint Armand in Montreal Canada, one of the few remaining paper mills to make both handmade and machine made papers. Their papers are beautiful to the eye and hand, and amazingly strong. The inside pages are 70 lb. Canson drawing paper, making these perfect little sketchbooks to throw in a bag or pocket. They are sewn together with an exposed stitch binding.

I've got several in my Etsy shop now, so I'm offering a discount for purchases of multiples.
