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! 


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.
