The staples are easy to take out.
The pages are all removed!
I got this fabric tape from Cute Tape.
It is fabric - all cotton - very thin & flexible - and sticky!
This is how I decided my pages would fold -valley/mountain.
The tape worked well.
I'll be back with what I have done to the cover so far . . . off to visit with my mom. I am really happy and excited I have jumped in and started this, because no matter what I do, I will now be doing something art-related and working towards my goal of participating in this project!
yours creatively, lenna
