moncy3 the rescue



I found this book at one of my local thrift shops.  I though it would be a good example to show you 
how I recycle an unwanted book into pretty envelopes!


See this I spy book and its pretty cover?


Well, it's been discarded!


water is the damage!


Water damage at the bottom of the book!


I tear the book apart and cut the damaged bottom


I find a template that can nicely fit the 'rescued pages'
I then trace, cut and glue! 

Voila!  

this is the final result!  






If you haven't done so come and play along 
on my true or false game

Have a great day my lovies.
