Staff Pick

Any booklover with the slightest inkling toward craftiness will swoon over the darling projects outlined in this book. Make a sharp-looking portfolio from vintage album covers, a paint-sample photo album, or a journal from a hot water bottle. (Far more adorable than it sounds, I promise.) Also includes a basic introduction to bookbinding tools and techniques.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Re-Bound shows readers how to take every day materials from around the house, flea markets and thrift stores, and hardware and office supply stores, and turn them into fabulous books. Instead of saying, "What can I make a book out of," readers will be thinking, "What can't I make a book out of?" In Re-Bound, a vintage souvenir wallet becomes a photo album. Last year's trendy sweater becomes a take-along journal. Even potato chip bags get a second life as a handy pocket notebook. This fun pursuit is economical as well as ecological. A variety of attractive, uncomplicated bindings, how-to instructions, and step-outs bring each project to life.

Synopsis:

Re-Bound is a beautiful book on bookbinding with a fun green twist-all the projects use recycled and upcycled materials. This book shows you how to take everyday materials from around the house, flea markets, thrift stores, and hardware stores and turn them into clever and eye-catching hand-made books.

I love this book! Great visuals and step by step instructions to making your own books. I am planning on using some paint test strips to make Christmas stocking stuffer scrapbooks. They look really neat and the designs are well thought out! A must for green crafters and scrappers alike!

Very interesting to see the different materials with which one can make a book. I wish I'd saved my hot water bottle that got a hole in it!
