Does anyone use a phone book anymore? I can’t remember the last time I thought to flip through these pages before I googled. Somehow these keep magically appearing at my doorstep, and for some reason, I can’t just toss them in the trash. (Maybe because I want to save one so that I can one day explain to my children what a phone book is/was?) Regardless, here’s a simple and crafty use for these artifacts.
I keep mine within reach whenever I’m doing a small scale stamping, painting, glueing, glittering project. (Scrapbookers? Where are you?) I simply flip to a page, place my papers on a page, and get started. If some paint finds its way off my brush and on the yellow pages, that’s ok! If my stamp is too big for my paper and extends onto the ads below, that’s ok, too! And if my adhesive runner leaves a trail of stick behind, it’s not a problem. When I can’t find clean space on my page, I just flip to the next and start all over again!
So simple, right? And a lot better than tossing this tome into the trash!
