New books from old paper

Yolanda Vivas from IS 171 in Brooklyn has been a frequent visitor to MFTA for the past few months, and she is one of our members I am delighted to see each shopping day. She recently shared the work she’s been doing with her students, and it sure is great. The students used fabric, paper, envelopes, ribbon, and card stock to make books, journals, and photo albums. One parent even made her daughter a backpack out of brown bags and recycled folders for her eighth grade graduation. The work shows the very practical side of reuse, and the little details make sure each book is unique and expressive.
