  • The Unibind Photobook Creator
  • Brenda’s Pretty Flower Dies
  • Mini Brads
  • Aleen’s Original Tacky Glue
  • 1 Starbucks Bag
  • 1 Lowe’s Lawn and Garden Bag
  • 1 random 12x12 brown bag that I got from the LSS when I bought some real paper
  • Core’dinations Card Stock
  • Plaid Apple Barrell Indoor/Outdoor Black Paint
  • Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking Ink Mocha
  • Min Wax Cherry Wood Stain (marker)
  • Silver Sharpie

  • My trusty Ryobi Power Drill


  1. The Unibind Photobook Creator helps me make sure all the random brown paper pages are bound neatly, and stay securely in place.
  2. Inside I bound about 20 pages of brown bag paper for ideas and sketches. I didn’t keep all the pages the same size…creative minds are rarely tidy, so this didn’t bother me.
  3. I use Sizzix Flower Dies anytime I can and I loved altering and distressing Brenda’s pretty new flowers. I left the Starbucks logo on the book quite on purpose as I often stop in for a cup of inspiration in the afternoon, and I’ll love using my Starbucks book while I’m sipping my afternoon coffee.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

thank you for sharing, the project is very creative, very inspirational and I'm really sorry I can't use it and give the author credit. I agree with michelle and I am a very experienced crafter not only nearly 40 years of experience (yeah, I'm including the school years -), but I am a craft instructor for over 5 years now. There's so many ways to bind pages - which one was used here, and why? Are the pages double or single? Is the cover wood, cardboard, something else? - the drill on the materials list seem to suggest wood. what is the crinkle effect on the cover? some kind of paste? rice paper? are the pages inside also decorated? The flowers on the cover look handmade was colored paper used, or where they colored with one or more of the dyes in the materials list? were they even purchased, and only look handmade? true that I can make up answers to all these questions and make my own design, and then i can hardly say that mine was inspired by this one...

I really love this project but for someone like me that dont have the gift of creativity and knowledge of crafts. It would have been nice to see this project step by step. You didnt really explain what was used where. Im sure a crafter would figure it out but for me? Nope, lol. I'm going to try this anyway because I love it. Thank you
