Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I recently spent half a day with my girls at a playground, playing in the sand and collecting twigs, stones and small pieces of trash we found laying around, such as caps to water bottles. We used our collection to create a “trash city” in the sand, as my oldest called it. It was such a wonderful time I took photos of the activity and when we returned home I thought I should make a special book to remember this.
I created a book using pieces of rounded corner wood for the front and back covers. I painted them a soft green, wrapped the cover in string and glued a twig in the center. I created interior pages out of soft grey paper and bound the pages using my Your Story book binding machine. I then glued the front and back cover to the interior pages. I ordered the photos from our “trash city” activity and am placing them in the book to capture our special day.
