I save and recycle everything! I’ve collected many paper towel rolls hoping to make a book from them. I’ve seen them used for photo albums but I wanted to make a book that showed the material off more and also looked like a antique.
– 14 rolls of toilet paper (flattened and cut on one side)
– Brown fabric tape
– Door handle embellishments
I put all the paper rolls together in a stack. I then made 6 holes on one side and sewed the pages together with wire. Then I covered this side with fabric tape, attached the handle and made the belts with the fabric tape. Because the book was bulky I used magnets to hold the book closed. They are hidden under the straps.
I fashioned a book mark with a tassel, adding some scrap paper with the word “secretos” stamped on it.
