  • Fab notebooks

    I was in a book shop this morning and saw some things which turned out to be notebooks but the front covers where the covers of old Ladybird books!!!I loved them!!

    Swirly-maybe you could recycle old ladybird book covers and stick notepads in the middle of the covers.

      I think she has used the pictures from the books to make badges in the past, so to use the covers would be even more of a green/recycling success.

        I know Swirly is doing something similar at the moment as I've seen one (in the flesh!!) and I think she did a thread about them not so long ago - I think it was 'is there a market for these'.

        And they were fab too!!

          funily enough I thought about that a while ago as I have a stack of vintage kids books in the shed... turning them into notebooks that is.. but as I don't actually know how that sorta went out the window... instead I paint and stain "text" pages from vintage books..

          I have had a snoop around online and found this

            Clutter, me?? The big tidy up was a huge success a few months ago but it looks like a tip again now! I do save all the covers from the books I use but just haven't got round to using them yet as there is not enough time in the day!
