upcycled

Cheap notebooks have a lot of potential... take this one... made a new cover from a cereal box and chinese paper... plus a bit of paint... plus a pendant I made years ago with an old coke can and some copper nails... by the way... if you make jewelry, never mix copper with aluminum... if it gets wet, a chemical reaction occurs and somehow the copper "eats" the aluminum...

Thank you, Steph, I didn't know about the copper-aluminium thing (never tried to mix them up, though)!
The notebook is really cool! What are you going to do with it?!
