Eco Box Board Books


I made a bunch of these for a local craft sale that I did a while ago and they were rather popular that day. The few that were leftover, have been added to my Etsy shop, which lead to an order for 10 of them last week (shown above). There are quite quick and fun to make - and they are made with entirely recycled & repurposed materials. The covers are obviously made from the boxes left from our various snacks around here. It could be a commentary on our buying and eating habits...but try not to analyze it too much! The pages are also a mixture of papers from discarded notebooks, excess printer paper, some coloured paper cutoffs from larger projects, and then filled up with some new white paper that is 100% recycled. These ones will be in my Etsy shop:

I l.o.v.e. those books.

I recently tried my hand at some little notebooks, and I think I might be able to stumble my way through and have a go at these.

It's such a fantastic idea, and a wow use of packaging!
I'll let you know how I go. :)
