kraft + vintage paper notebooks

I love kraft paper and can't seem to get enough of it. This past month, I decided to make kraft notebooks featuring random images from vintage books on the covers – yet another way to salvage all those unwanted used books! Each image is sewn on to the cover with colourful thread, and each book is made out of 100% post-consumer recycled paper. I had initially made four dozen, which then ended up being snapped up very quickly at the local craft fairs. Luckily I made an extra batch and will be posting new ones up in the shop every couple of days!
