Junk Scrapbook with Ribbon Binding

Tried something new today.  A Junk Scrapbook with a Ribbon Binding.   The covers are made with recycled thin cardboard covered with pictures from last year's calendars.  The pages are  used Christmas cards, covered on one side with brown and red paper bags from the Cracker Barrel  Store.  With one page covered with a material that seemed to coordinate.  The pages are held to the back cover with a hair tie and a cooking skewer.

The binding:  I used a 3 inch wide ribbon and fixed it to the covers using Scor tape.  It looks a bit sloppy but I do like the idea - If I do it again I'm sure it will turn out better.
