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!

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.
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.
