Recycled books

The theme for the next team book swap is Recycled, so to get those creative juices flowing, here are a few samples of what our members have made with recycled materials.

Askida has made this notebook from a wooden fruit crate:


 Useful Books has used all scrap materials for this small journal, including tea packaging, chip board, and paper offcuts from other projects:


Angelawehrle recycled an unwanted book into a new journal with a great cover:


KristinCrane uses old out of date atlases and maps for her map journals:


The possibilities are endless! Take a look around you and get started with creatively reusing materials. You might be surprised with what you come up with!

I just signed up for the swap! Now to just sort through all the ideas in my head. And I can't wait to get someone's lovely book.
