Old newspaper and birch bark

Just a couple of the fun journals that I had left over from last weekend's Halifax Crafters Spring market (which was a great time, by the way). First of all, an aged journal with an actual 1936 newspaper on the covers.
And this one, with real birch bark! Ever since the first time I used birch bark, I've been wanting to make books like this more often - the bark is a tricky material, but the result is very satisfying!
Both now available on Etsy.

Beautiful books. Birches are my favourite trees.
Is this an Eco-friendly format?

Oh my goodness, they are gorgeous! I love, love, love the vintage newspaper one especially.
