Silkworm Cocoon Mini-Book

This is another dyed silkworm cocoon fashioned into a mini-book. I used my handmade paper with inclusions of seeds and weeds for the 8 little pages, each with it's own positive word collage. They read "cherish, peace, forever, new ideas, super, special, beautiful". Then I added glass beads for 
a sparkly finishing touch. Silk cocoons are actually sturdy, and they take stitching well.
