Say no to crack(ed).

I use lots and lots of found materials to make my stationary. I love using old school materials. Books, workbooks, flashcards from my childhood and before are my favorites. (yes, this might give a teeny hint at my age). The graphics are bold, nice rational layout. (made to appeal to young learners). However, when they made these products they didn't anticipate anyone reusing them. Alas. Some paper is just NOT made to withstand multiple folds. Or any folds for that matter. While this does inspire me to find a tidy workaround, it also irritates the hell out of me.   I guess the upside of this is that I will no longer hover protectively over my favorite materials. (like the one in the picture). Find the best way to use something, do it, then move on to something new and more fabulous!
