DIY Mini Milk Cap Accordion Books (by Monica Holtslaw)
Milk caps are like a perfect little slice of vintage pie. Each one reminds me of an intricate poster and what better to do than find two that match and sandwich a special note in between! I’ve started turning my growing collection of vintage milk caps into a delightfully functional series called Milk Mail. Once you have your note written just put it in it’s milk mailer and send it on its way!
DIY Folding Travelogues (by Martha Stewart)
Enlarge photos from a recent trip and make foldouts: an accordion type, formed by taping photocopies together, or an origami-style version, using a bone folder to make sharp creases. These inserts, pasted into an ordinary journal, add an element of surprise to the story of the trip and convey some of the city’s grandeur.
