IT'S FUN TO REUSE ~ VIVE LA RECUP'
As far as I can remember I've always loved to recycle / reuse. Growing up in the 70s' and 80s' I used to love reading my Mom's 100 Idees , a wonderful French magazine that had the coolest ideas for creating something new with something old. That publication had a great impact on me and this project reminds me of it.
I've often marvelled at Whole Foods' brown paper bags. First of all I love Kraft paper and they usually have very cool designs on them.This one is no exception. As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be a mini album for some summer pictures and memories.
I cut the " Destination Summer" out and adhered it to Creative Cafe blue cardstock.
I applied a layer of PVC ( Paper Source ) on it and let it dry.
I then cut out around the lettering more precisely and use that as a template for the background.
The cover page was cut in half as the interior pages whose width have to be a little bit smaller due to the binding coils.
The next step was the binding which was done with the bind-it-all machine.
Rubbans were added as embellishments et voila!
Let me know if you have any questions or comments, I'll be happy to answer them.
