Reduce, Reuse ,Recycle Challenge

Welcome to day 2 of the Core'dinations Holiday Crop
We all have them....those lonely dusty books, just sitting on the shelves of our homes, thrift stores and second hand shops. You know the ones that no longer are of use or the datebooks that are out of date, or heck, books that were just a terrible read in the first place. Well here is your chance to breath new life into their old bindings.
Today's Challenge is to Reuse a book, a notepad, a journal....anything and transform it into something new. Could be a hide box, could be a gift note pad, a phone book.....there are endless possibilities. The only real rule is recreate a book using Core'dinations in the most creative way you can.
When you are done, link your creation to Inlinkz at the bottom of this post, before December 2nd to be entered to win a Core'dinations Prize
Don't forget to also share your creations on the facebook page so that everyone can see what you have created and leave some love!!
Here is what I did

I chose this old book because of it's lovely red color, the anatomy of arson was interesting, but not something that I think that I will ever need to know about ;)

So I tore out the insides.....

I then used a book binding tape to cover the seam and title, you could try washi or Fabric tape too!

and then I just decorated the cover.

When all my pages are complete I will bind it all together....and voila, this will be my December Daily.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Happy Creating
