Altered School book
Okay, so this is the before picture, yes I'm sure you all know what a schoolbook looks like, but I'm quite impressed with myself for this one.
I've started getting the BBC Easy Cook magazine, and have found quite a few recipes in it that we really enjoy, the only problem is when I go to find them again, I can never remember which magazine they were in and spend ages trying to find the recipe, so I thought I would make a place to keep all these recipes so I can find them again, and this is what I came up with....
The original plan was to cover the whole book in one sheet of paper, but I then realised that it was too big for this, so had to revert to plan B, and use a decorative paper across the spine and different card for the main part front and back. All the bits and pieces were cut on my Cricut (love that little machine!). Thought it best to get a picture of it now, because once I start using this book, it will probably end up covered in bits of food! still at least it's got a very practical use.
