I love books.

I've always loved books - reading, writing, collecting, stacking, arranging, and making. My love has evolved and expanded. I think this Summer will include a lot of book making fun.

This is my first repurposed book. Well, not really. But it's the first one like this!

I've used a tea box from Trader Joe's (as obvious). I cut down the side I wanted and folded an edge to make a spine for my book.

The paper is just regular paper that I dyed in an old Cabernet Sauvignon. Of course, a tea stain would be more appropriate since the cover is a tea box, but the pink stripe is so prominent a design element that I wanted to go with that more rosy hue instead.
