Ivy Hollow - hot off the press

by brae  

I've made up a mini newspaper stack for the post office. I settled on a midyear 1917 edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer because it had horse drawn carriages on the front page above the fold. Again, these are in scale and not really legible.

I printed two other styles of interior pages just to have print throughout, though the backs of each image are blank.

I cut the various spreads then folded each individually.

I placed the two inserts inside the cover and folded into shape. A roller helped push everything together.

I glued the main fold on the inside and then a few random corners to hold the shape a bit.

I rolled the paper again and trimmed the non-folded edges with an X-Acto knife.

I tried to get them as consistent as possible, but I really needed only one near perfect one for the top of the stack.

As long as they were all relatively close in size, they would work as a stack.

Once I had a stack of ten, I used buttonhole thread to tie the stack.

Hooray! :D

Wonderful ....they look fresh off the print - I can smell the ink from here.....remember the smell of a new newspaper???? I wonder how old you have to be for that to resonate

Thank you!! :>>

Unfortunately, I could not find "fresh newspaper" scented spray to add that bit of realism. :))
