Remember autograph books? I do and had one. I doubt if I still have it, when I was younger I was shy, not popular, and didn't have a lot of friends so it was not easy for me to ask for autographs.
I also have a 'thing' for small blank books so when I saw this autograph book at the thrift store (where else?) I 'had' to buy it.
I planned to decoupage the cover and give it to my granddaughter.....that was over a year ago....
I grabbed my Xyron (a virgin that I was planning to get rid of) and decided to use it to recover the book. This Xyron adhesive is barely wide enough for this project, but it did work. And I loved it....but I still think I will try to sell it at the used stamp sale when I run out of adhesive, it's expensive and wasteful to use, but it worked great.
I covered the inside front and back covers.
The striped paper is green (not blue as it looks here) and does match the front.
I think it's cute, it's a sturdy little book, and could be used for a lot of things. What should I do with it??? I'm just impressed with myself that I finally covered it.
Thanks for visiting! I have lots of other crafty projects in mind...if I get at them I'll post.
