Have you heard of smash books? I try to steer clear of overly commercialized craft products, but this one really got me. What sent me running out to buy one was actually the combination pen/glue stick that comes with each one. Why hasn't anyone thought of that before? And with one of those Michael's coupons, it was only about 6 dollars. The version I picked is "Doodle Red".
I'm using my book as a little museum of the scraps of paper, pictures I've taken, and other (mostly) flat things I would never want to throw out. Here are some pages-in-progress from mine. There is still plenty of room for more stuff!
book I made out of a ledger a little while ago.
