Upcycling Book Crafts from an un-crafty me
I am not much of a scrapbooker or crafter. But every now and then I get the urge to create something with my hands.
My fourteen-year-old sister is at the Wyoming state county fair this week, showing her lambs. I found a retro children's book called Frisky at the Fair and immediately thought about the cool upcycling books that I've seen around.
I've taken apart the book and cleaned it up a bit, inserted scrapbook pages to hold photos of my sister at fairs with her lambs and created some neato envelopes to glue inside. Now I just need to get ahold of some recycled blank paper to put in-between the original story pages. I'll have it bound and my sister will have one of the only crafty things I've ever made as a keepsake.
I'm entering this craft into a giveaway from a friend I know from high school. Head on over and check out Candice's Artsy Challenge. She's way more artsy than I!
