recycled book covers
I cleaned off my bookshelves and decided to take the book covers off all my hardcovers, creating an old library look. It ended up being quite a pile in the recycle bin, so I decided to make another blank notebook, that is only one sided. I cut the covers all to the same size, then pieced together, stapling to bind them. I then used recycled cardboard for the cover, which I left plain, except for the tie dye duct tape I used as the spine. It has a worn look that I will use for my new "idea" notebook. The cool thing is I am reminded of all the cool books I've read in the past.
