In these simple photographic steps, Wyvern Bindery shows how they’ve created bespoke decorations for their window using leather off-cuts or paper.
While they’ve used special bookbinding tools to create these hanging decorations, anyone can use a similar process, replacing leather with decorative paper (or even old books!) and replacing professional bookbinding tools with scissors or cut-out tools.
