Blank books, I use them all the time for various reasons and I have distinct ones for each different thing. I like them to be in all sizes and shapes, visually appealing, not boring and also to have recycled paper in them. Notebooks, journals, composition books, list pads are some of the types I've made or altered in a number of ways over the years. Here are examples of two I made recently from recycled cardboard. Other materials used were a photo, a recycled shopping bag, glittery decoupage, sticky pages for inside, recycled white paper and hemp for the tie. These are simple and one of a kind.
