  28. Lori McClellan says:

    Sometimes just a simple thing at the right time is amazing. I’m looking to do a coffee table book with all the Christmas cards and some other things an artist friend did. I choose a smaller notebook and needed to accent the pages without distracting from the art. Accenting the inside of the page with tape will be perfect.
