DIY Craft Recipes Book ~ Recycled coffee boxes

As I was working on a project to store some bulky stamps, not having a clue of what I was doing, I ended up wasting a bunch of gel medium… I was a bit pissed off and had to go on YouTube to find some DIY gel medium recipes because… Because I am me 😀

I found more than I’ve bargained for, and also found a DIY for gesso; clear, white and black! And of course, the texture paste that I use already.

With the new recipes, I needed a place to keep them. Cute, of course. This project came together very quickly, and now I already have some more books in the waiting list 😉

I love recycling everything I can, the first reason being respect for the planet. The second because I am cheap 😛  But then, I’ve learnt from an artist I used to follow that the only thing we need is a surface, gesso and some paint. With that, anything can be altered. Why buy cardstock if I can re-use what I have instead of throwing it away? This is me.
