Re-purpose Tattered Children's Books


It all kinda starts with my passion for
frequenting some of my 
favorite local Thrift Shops....


I have to confess I have a real hard time passing up
and leaving behind tattered and worn Children's Books
What do you think it is? The Graphics?
The memories of my first Dick & Jane Books? 
Whatever it is I have a problem....


Recently I've been trying to purge...
either use it or lose it!
So I thought how fun to do a little
cut and paste project...


Just starting out with some regular manila tags..
and believe me when I say "I HAVE PLENTY"


I remove the string and add some coordinating ribbon
use a glue stick to paste the images and type to the tag
 then I take my brown stamp pad and
give the edges a little finishing touch!


Pretty simple and you get great results!
So next time your ready to pass on that vintage
book that is falling apart at the spine..
Hey bring it hope and get creative!
