Repurposing and recycling a pre loved book.

When I browse the book sections in thrift shops I am immediately drawn to books like these:
 Little books that were previously loved.
 Ah!  I can see Lara loved it book so much she changed the title.


 So I rip the little book apart in order to give it a new life.
I grab some paper bags (I love my brown bag stationery section), trace A2 size envelopes. From the book pages I cut liners and punch circles for pretty stickers.
 I use some glue to put everything together.

I love the end result...charming, cheerful and cute stationery.  Now waiting patiently in my shop for a new owner that will love it as much as the previous owner did!
