Clow book tutorial by ThemisValvernis Clow book tutorial by ThemisValvernis
Well I was asked how I did my clow book and because I took many pictures while working on it I thought I'll make a tutorial.
Well I hope everything's clear with that, if it isn't feel free to ask =)

The Clow book in action with one of my Sakura Cosplays:

EDIT
Ok this got so much favs and views... I can't thank all of you separately but let me say this: You are awesome and I love you! Thank you so much <3

EDIT 2:
As suggested in one of the comments on this: You can also use paper mache books from art and craft stores for this, so you don't need to destroy a book =)

Hello ! Sorry I didn't saw this message before x) 
Yes I'm working on one but it's not easy x) I try to do one dress she wear but I don't think I took good fabrics to do it. So I'm still looking to finish it eventually, but I'm not sure for the results. 
Otherwise, I made the first staff she had. And I the clow book is still on work x) I don't know if I want to do the back of the book, that's a lot of drawring and I'm not good at this ahah 
Happy New Year !

Very nice tutorial... Something that might make it even easier. A lot of craft stores actually have papermache books for things just like this. That's what I used to make mine. Plus you don't have to destroy a book for it. (As a former librarian the idea of harming a book makes me twitchy. lol.

Oh no beware! I didn't destroy a real book for that =) Mine was actually one from these notebooks that look like real books on the outside =)
