Jeannine Stein's Creative Re-Bound Book

Home Library: Re-Bound

What do a water bottle, shower rug, worn-out sweater, and a window screen all have in common? They can all be repurposed into homemade books . . . by you! Jeannine Stein shows her readers how to turn old items into new albums or journals with a few simple tricks in her insanely creative book Re-Bound ($16).

While I've seen texts on how to make a book with paper, bindings, fabric, and ribbon, I've never seen (or considered for that matter) how to craft up a family photo album using a vintage record cover or an old water bottle! Complete with patterns, stitching guidelines, templates, and ideas to get you jump-started, this book will have you digging through your recycling for your next craft project. With the basics already in the green bin, the only thing left to buy will be a few simple and inexpensive crafty items. After a couple of tries, you may be pleasantly surprised to find yourself with an empty recycle basket and a table full of new books. Can you say Christmas presents?
