Mini-book pin's Answered
Okay, so I'm trying to make some mini-book pin's. Well actually I'm not sure it's actually called "pin's" in English... it's a thing that was popular in the 90's (in France at least), a decorative object with a pin on the back and a kind of clip to attach it to clothing. I've found a picture on wikipedia, but it's really, really bad quality and I'm not sure it will help : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/Pins01.JPG
Sooo... since I ruined my girlfriend's one when I put it with her clothes in the washing machine, I thought I could try to do one my self... shouldn't be too hard, heh ?
But my problem is : I have some thin paper for the pages, and nice leather-like paper for the cover, but I have no idea how to glue the pages together, because the mini-book needs to be openable like a real book. I tried some "2 coat rubber cement" I got here but it just doesn't work... I don't have a glue gun but I think maybe it is the kind of thing I need. You see, the glue has to be solid enough to form the spine of the book.
Anyone has an idea about what I should do (I hope I've been clear enough) ?
One problem I'm thinking of, too, is that the book has to stay well closed unless you really want to open it.
