cracker box turned...cute little book!

That's how Thursday...with Eryn!

Don't you just LOVE learning something NEW!?!? I have loved ALL the past tutorial's that the {ippity} DT have posted in the last few months!
{to check them all out click on "that's how Thursday" to the left}

So inspiring!

I also love creating projects from items you have just laying around the house...convert a regulary household item into something FAB!

Like the cracker box shown in the picture below...

converted into a cute little book!

I actually got the idea for this book on another blog that I found as I was blog surfing!!

for the FULL TUTORIAL on how to create this book!

Above are the supplies I used to create a little book...

A MUST for this project is the painters tape...super helpful.

The book I made measures 3.75 x 5 inches.

I actually created the cover before I adhered it to the cardboard box...

The paper I used is from an old journal that was pretty much falling apart...

perfect for this book!

I definitely plan on making more of these cute little books...they are

SUPER EASY & make a FUN gift!

The stamp I used is from the current {ippity} scrapbooking kit:

{by the way...I LOVE this kit, I have used it over & over & over again!!}

Hope I have INSPIRED YOU to try making one of these little books!
Remember to check out THIS BLOG for the details on HOW!
