I have been working on a project that involves recycling cereal, cracker, and tea boxes into a book. I’m not sure if it will work. I cut the pages approximately the same size. Then I put gesso on both sides of the pages. I found I had to use some steel wool to rough up the surfaces on the printed side of the pages. Along one side of each page I am sewing a strip of fabric. This is my plan to fasten all the pages together by sewing close to the edge of the page. I’ll explain this further later on, if my plan works. Here is one of the pages that has the strip of fabric sewn onto it.
