I made this book about a year ago. I have this collection of old newspaper cutouts of fashion drawings that I love working with. I've toted this thing around since then and it's now filled with random doodles. I used photo printer paper for the pages and the covers are made of old cardboard boxes- yay recycling!

the front cover:

the back:

I didn't take pictures of the inside of the covers, but they are just plain orange card stock.

I like the flapper style you created here! The purple background matches the theme very well.

I love love LOVE this... I mostly love how everything is reused/recycled material but it's so cute and such a great idea! This would be great for a photography portfolio!
