Baby Dragon Skull :)
I love old leather-bound tomes, so I decided to make one myself. I use it to organize my Eleventh World Saga information...and it's just cool to have. If you want to see how I made it, check it out HERE.
Though I do most of my writing on the computer, I love making notebooks to jot down ideas and organize my thoughts. They also make a creative and fun project to do on a rainy afternoon!
I recently got into soap-making and wanted to make sure that I wrote down all the recipes I used so that if I found a batch I really liked I would be able to repeat it. Because I love making projects for myself, I created a notebook entirely from recycled goods! The pages are from an old sketchbook that I bound to make into book form (I used this tutorial). I came across an awesome idea (see this link) of how to use old plastic grocery bags, which I altered to use as the cover for my book. If you look closely you can see the labels:) Randomly on the back it says "this side bad" which I found very funny. I made a strap around it (using the left-over strips of plastic), and then used a magnet from the fridge with a metal bottle cap to secure it. I used an old catalog to create a 'hidden' compartment in the back because I wanted a way to save samples of each of the soaps as well. I glued two of those magnets that often come with phone books (and usually get thrown away) inside this compartment. The metal bottle caps stick to this surface nicely so I just glued my sample to the inside of the cap, and voila!
