Game boards make excellent covers for your handmade notebooks and journals. I purchased many scrabble boards over the years, mostly for the tiles, and I have recently started using the boards for my notebooks. I never even thought of this sized book until I had left over board. I just had to trim off one side and it became a perfect sized book, about 5" by 7". Covered in scrapbook paper, you'd never realize this was recycled!
You can check it out on Etsy.
