My local Starbucks is closing this Sunday. While I make most of my coffee drinks at home, I still purchase my supplies from Starbucks and enjoy hanging out with friends over coffee in the store. Harriet and I met yesterday morning at Starbucks and when I bought my coffee supplies, they packed it nicely in a bag with tissue. I'm keeping the tissue and will use it to make tissue paper flowers and I cut up the bag and made a book out of it. I will fondly remember my local Starbucks everytime I use this book.
I showed my husband my book and told him, "I feel like Eve!"
He said, "Who's Eve?"
Then I said, "You know, Eve. My California friend. "
Ok, whatever dude. It's obvious he doesn't listen to me when I talk. Let's move on.
Eve makes all these cool little books and last month she made a Starbucks book.
I messed my book up in a couple of spots but it's cool. When I get my grubby hands on another bag I'll chop it up and make another one. I used my SU tab punch and punched the tabs from the sides of the Starbucks bag. I went online and looked up coffee quotes and put a quote on the first page of each section. I briefly pondered spilling coffee on it and letting it dry so my book would smell like Starbucks but then I thought that would be like buying toilet paper in a rain storm...is that really a good idea?
I used 6x6 acrylic covers and the covers don't look as wrinkled in person. I ironed the bag but couldn't get all the wrinkles out. It's ok, I like the rustic look. I can always rip out the page with the typo but I don't want to.
