This was a Christmas present for a friend.
She loves to draw and she loves Harry Potter...so I figured this would be perfect.
It only took me a few hours to put it together. Mainly, I had to wait for glue to dry and then cut the paper to the right size.
I put the rings on it, so she could refill it with more paper or use it for something else once she's done sketching in it. Smiley
I used a Harry Potter book that was somewhat falling apart. So I don't feel as bad for doing it. But it was still hard for me to do this to a book.
I have found out a better way of doing it since.
I used Packaging tape on the front and back covers, because I didn't have anything else I could use at the time.

Front cover -

Inside front cover, I decorated it with some pieces that I cut off of some scrapbooking paper I had -

Inside back cover, I did the same thing to it that I did to the inside front cover -

Back cover -

And she loved it Cheesy

Eee! Exactly what I want to do! Great recycling of a poor, falling-apart book. I think it looks great and the two rings are a great idea.

Thank you Cheesy

I figured, since it was falling apart, I'd give it a new life.
I plan on doing it again for another friend who likes to draw. I just need to find the right book Cheesy

Wow that's so brave, I could never do that to my Harry Potter books!  Shocked

At least you didn't just give up on the book and throw it away!
This is super cool, and I gasped when I saw it. Now I kinda want one. lol

Take me to a midnight show.

Thanks Smiley
I haven't made another Harry Potter one since...I've made a couple Twilight themed ones though.

Gotta remember to make some more Harry Potter ones Smiley
