Make Something: Book, Not Paper

What material would you use to make a book without paper? My first two thoughts were fabric and plastic bags. I had ideas for each, individually, but wanted to push them together. The result is something odd, but useful:

A tiny book for saving teeth

Do all moms save their children’s teeth?

In our household, the kids long ago began training the Tooth Fairy to leave not just cash or coins, but the teeth as well. They communicated this need by way of hand-written notes tucked under the pillow with each tooth. They all know I’m hoarding their teeth in the top drawer of my dresser. Sometimes they even ask to see them.

Now the stash is a little more orderly.

Still gross, perhaps. But orderly.
