Remade: recycled envelope and leather notebook

In this week’s Remade session, we learnt a book-binding technique to recycle old envelopes.

I love the prints and the odd spatter of text or stamp marks on the pages. I even included the envelope windows on a couple of leaves to give my notebook a layered effect.

The cover of this notebook is recycled leather – once part of a leather sofa found in a skip.
