Little notebooks, little notebooks…


I made some little notebooks.  All paper salvaged from an office recycling, cut to fit with little cardstock images I found graphic and entertaining – a flight safety pamphlet (no, I didn’t remove it from the seatback pocket), the cover of an antique trashy paperback, postcards, and bits from calendars.

In theory it would be a good way to add value to paper and saved images, but it took rather forever to cut little stacks of paper to fit and match up some attractive front and back covers.

After I had them all ready to bind, I took them to my neighborhood copy store that smells like toner.  I wanted the spiral coil binding, but that required sending them away and waiting for days, so I accepted the Cerlox binding they could do immediately.

Voila, little notebooks!
