Who picks up the free mags at the end of a supermarket shop? I did and found some good recipes inside. I decided to make this throwaway mag into a junk Autumn recipe book. Two mags were needed for this and all I did was to stick papers over anything that was advertising or not relevant. Here's a comparison of the front covers.
Inside the book I crudely decorated with crafty bits.
Advertising was covered up with note paper ...
… or other recipes which were cut out of the sacrificial mag.
I even covered large advertising pages with interesting articles from another section.
Now I have a recipe book that can be brought out in the autumnal season and added to each year. Not a load of junk after all.
