Crafting with Beer

Well, not really beer. More like the 6-packs they come in! I've been saving 6-packs with interesting artwork for a while, and I think I've even blogged about this in the past. I used the artwork to make a batch of fun little books. These aren't serious books -- I used a glue stick and the simple pamphlet stitch for binding. They are of the "quick & dirty" variety of booklets.

Here's the whole batch:

I really enjoy selecting the papers for inside the covers. It gives me an opportunity to go through the huge stash of paper I've been collecting over the years.

This one is my favorite. It's from a 4-pack of specialty beer that I bought for Rick a few years ago.

This one is obviously NOT from a 6-pack and it's for Chelline, who gave me a stack of Mount Gay Rum boxes. What's going on down there in Soldotna anyway??

Remember I said I might do another give away? I'm considering the Samuel Adams book as the next one. Stay tuned!

Your little beer books are great. They would be so great for keeping tasting notes at beer festivals!

Super fun! I've got a ton of paper I've been saving over the years, too. I've been thinking about giving it away to someone who'll actually, you know, use them. You interested?
