Butter Box Sewing Instructions
You will notice that what started out yesterday as a butter box book has morphed into a neufchatel cheese box book. When I was writing the instructions I realized I needed process shots of some of the steps, so I decided to make another book and use it for the shots I needed and as a model for process sketches.
So off I went to the store to buy butter (again). But we currently have six sticks of expensive butter staring at us every time we open the fridge, and we really don't go through butter that fast. I considered lurking around the dairy case and asking another butter buyer to give me her box (I would give her a nice plastic container in exchange). But that seemed too pathetic. So I opted to buy a package of neufchatel cheese, which came in a similar box (not quite as wonderful as the Kate's butter box, but close), and make the book out of that. So what's neufchatel cheese anyway? fancy cream cheese?
