1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Tweet birdie birthday book for mum! - my first book project on: March 06, 2008 09:22:49 PM










It's my mum's birthday today! i made her a little book so we can all write in it. each family member has their own page.

I was so inspired by all the covered journals and notebooks I've seen on this forum! This is my first attempt. It's a notebook/chequebook like thingy, with hard cardboard covers and recycled paper pages.

I tried very hard to be earth-friendly...i used recycled paper, found cardboard and paper salvaged from a condemned children's book! i can't blog about it yet (since we haven't given it to her yet, and she reads my blog), so here it is!

How does it look?

xx,
guileless

that's such a cool idea! i love how the covers are discreet and black, but a rainbow jumps out inside Smiley

i think it looks lovely like that, but i'd put it to good use and put precious things on the pages. things that matter to you, like photos, recipes, of beautiful quotes.
