So that Tootsie Roll box turned into this colorful little hand-bound journal. The pages are a beige recycled paper. The spine edges and the wrap-around front tab are wrapped in bright red duct tape and the stitching is done with red satin ribbon in a herringbone pattern. The narrow wrap-around is secured with a tiny piece of Velcro. The finished book measures approx. 5 " x 5 1/2".
I'm getting quite a collection of these "found-in-the-store" books! At least the materials are cheap.
