"Paper" - Photo Hunters

BAD PAPER!! Where does all this paper come from?! I hate junk mail! I let the pile grow all week in preparation for this week's theme.
GOOD PAPER!! This is sampling of some of the beautiful papers waiting to become a part of an altered book.

I have heard of altered books before but have not seen them done. As a school librarian myself, I would bet I could find some oldies but goodies in the colleciton that need some work. Your good papers are beautiful.

You should have seen the amount of flyers I have in my recycle box. If only those were gold.. LOL. Love those pattern paper you have there :)

Bad paper! We look like that all the time around here. Your "pretty" paper was wonderful!

~TinaW~ said...

Oh look at ALL that great stash of paper!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

What a great idea!
Those are both really nice photos for this week :)

For junk mail, I've heard to tear it up, write 'No Thank You' on one of the papers, and mail it back to them in the pre-paid envelope. Just takes one or two times, and they stop coming.

Happy Weekend & Happy Hunting!

Thats a lot of bad paper for one week. What's an altered book? Is it like a scrapbook?

Wow! That was only one week's worth? It's insane how much paper is wasted on junk mail.

I am totally envious of your "Good Paper" picture.

BTW, thanks for dropping by This Simple Life today. I appreciate your comment.

Wow... that's only one weeks worth of junk mail? I really like your altered books... never heard of that before. Beautiful work!

PowersTwinB said...

danielctw said...

Don't we all just hate 'bad' papers

Sue said...

Such pretty paper. Junk mail - yes the endless mound. My junk mail is all shredded. :)

Paulie said...

Well maybe some of that "bad" paper can be recycled for your scrapbooking. I know I use some parts of envelopes and cards for making cards when I am rubber stamping. You just have to be creative and recycle the rest!

Come and see mine.

Angela said...

Sometimes you can do good with bad paper, my son makes lots of paper airplanes with them. But good paper is always better! Thanks for sharing and visiting.
