i wasn't sure if this would be best posted in the the reconstructed book section or the scrapbook section. it is first and foremost a scrapbook, so i'm puting it here.

i stole the idea from my friend to turn an odd spanish textbook i had into a scrapbook.
my scrapbook is fairly word heavy. i have notes and newspaper clippings, movie tickets and play programs. i'm still not done with it. i would like to go back and add more color.

this is that same page in my friend's text book scrapbook:

hope you guys enjoy!

Wow!  I am also surprised hardly anyone has replied to this post!  Those pages are fabulous!  Your friends must love it!  I love that idea of a fun scrapbook like that, not just boring pictures in a photo album or a typical kitchy-scrapbook of memories.  You are really creative!  I am wondering how you made it, however, did you use the actual pages of a textbook and glue pictures and stuff to the pages? or did youinsert your own pages somehow?  and also I was wondering if you used all the pages and what the cover looks like!  Thanks!  Great job!  Christine

thanks guys for your replies. i got the spanish book when i had to take a spanish class by mail (instead of in school,) and they make you buy the book. i just glued the stuff (rubber cement or glue stick) to the pages. it makes the book bulky, and if you want to kept the shape of the book, you have to cut out some of the pages. (does that make sense?)

the front of the book just looks like a spanish book. it looks really cool on my shelf, cause it just looks like a book til you open it.

good luck with your book! i hope it turns out great!

Great job on the scrapbook!
Did you have to glue pages together?
I worry about sturdiness.
Yes, I am that person;)

All the goo we use, reviewed!

i didn't glue the pages together, but i know people who do. i didn't feel i needed to.

Wow.  Brilliant.  What a cool idea.  At my high school they make us buy our text books and for the past 3 years I've always gotten stuck with my history book because they decide to switch editions and we can't sell them to the class below us.  So what a great idea to do this with one or all of them.  Too bad they're all massive and I could never take that many pictures if my life depended on it.  Anyway, back to you, great work, great idea, you win for today.

Excellent use for an old text! I'll bet there are a lot of obsolete 4 yr old (make that 6 months old  Cheesy ) computer textbooks, too!
