Trash To Treasure - Recipe/Photo Holder

Do you love quick and easy projects made from things normally thrown away? 
Here is one that I hope you enjoy...
Supplies Needed:
Old spine from vintage photo album
Exacto Knife
Buttons & Floss
Recipe Cards or Photos
Lace to embellish
After trimming the album pages from the album, cut the spine from the back of the album with an Exacto Knife.
Measure the the width and length of the spine and cut a piece of chipboard.
Glue the chipboard to each flap of the spine...
creating a half circle.
Then add floss to buttons and glue buttons to each end of the album spine.
Add lace to recipe card and stick in the album spine for an easy recipe/photo holder.
I can't wait to make a few more of these.
Wishing you a creative day..
