a small before and after

I took one or a few of my kids books (I know most of you have these), and re-purposed it.  There isn't a full set of any of these because my kids tore most of them apart throughout the years.  Chipboard can be expensive. I just covered it with scrap paper and now it is the beginnings of a little i love you because book or brag book. you can all do this! it takes :
little books
sand paper
glue ( i really used white paper glue)
scrap paper
other embellishments. (buttons, glitter, leaves, whatever you have or want)
oh there is one trick, you have to sand off the pages to remove the shine or the glue won't stick

get inspired and make something!
