thankyou for all your replies!
i think I've made up my mind... this book deserves another chance so I'm going to remodel it (i.e chop chop)
sorry serenityfey! I agree with Mojen~ if it was worth anything, the money hungry library staff (jj, theyre not bad people) would have scrapped it years ago.
but if there are anymore comments, please add! I'd love to see your opinions
34  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Charles Dickens.. to chop or not... on: February 15, 2008 09:56:25 PM
so I was at my job at the library (yee yeah) and they were throwing out some old books cause they were water damaged.
i saw this one and wanted it... the cover had the most GORGEOUS patterns Cheesy

and salvaged it from the rubbish bin
when i got it home, i decided to make a book using the old covers.
when i took this book into my local scrapbooking shop to get some paper for a new lining, the lady seemed really shocked that i was going to cut it up... maybe because its from 1912...
anyway, i need some opinions. My dad thinks i should chop it, my mum thinks not, and im in between...
i'll also post a picture of the spinal damage.

this is the only picture inside the book
please help me make up my mind!!!

yea, i put a layer of white cartridge paper down first cause the patterned papers quite thin, once youve stuck down the paper i covered it with clear duraseal and that tends to make it quite tough.

thanks for your comments  Grin
i know that I was really surprised to find something cool and unusual.. i stuck them on with superglue because theyre metal, and it just took a little while to dry.
Since I threw out the packaging I think I remember the name as making memories? but heres the website of the shop I got them from.. the names of all the companies they stock are listed so its one of them Smiley http://www.paperworx.co.nz/index.php
37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cute space themed badges... on: February 02, 2008 12:38:36 PM
While the summer holidays were dragging on, i decided to make some badges. I picked up some metal charms from our local scrapbooking store

also some plastic stars left over from Christmas

and then hit a problem. I couldnt find the ball and cup style of badge backing anywhere! (I'm not sure of the actual name, so I'll put a photo to show you what I was looking for.)

Instead, i decided to use the butterfly earring backings, which i picked up from a massive craftstore for a real bargain
and voila!

The badges work, I just have to trim the length of the post once I find out how thick my blazer is...
comments welcome!
p.s sorry for the blurry photos, i took a lot of these late last night and I'm not sure how to work my new camera Tongue

So yea, this is my first posting! Smiley I have always had this fascination with school books and making cool interesting covers for them.. it really brightens up my summer! This year i decided to go down the classy path, as compared to the weird one i usually use...
I was in our local paper plus (stationary and books) and picked up a really cheap roll of wrapping paper, white with black patterns. I also used my pencil case from last year which i hand stitched from zips which is now looking a little worse for wear:P but it still hasnt fallen apart and got this reallly cute tiny pencil case.
Feedback welcome! I would love to know what sort of crazy things everyone else does with their books Smiley
p.s i know the photos arent working, i've asked a few questions and just waiting for replies. bear with me. i told you, im new!!
