I made this book as a "take and make project" when I attended my art club last month. As with so many things that you make in class....I wasn't thrilled with my end product. The book sat on my drafting table for a few days before I decided to remake it entirely. So I cut the binding, added additional pages with a "tag" theme, resewed the binding, and then completely collaged the front cover. NOW it is a perfect surprise for Maddie!
The covers were made from these huge playing cards. There's lots of other ideas on how to use them, too!
