I am just beginning the transition to scrapbooking from stuffing things in drawers, cigar boxes, between books and in 'safe places,' and I wonder about recycling some old 3-ring binders. I have a half dozen of them and they are tremendously sturdy and made for heavy use, with real hinges, industrial-grade rings, padded boards and so on. A pity to throw them away, but they are covered in hideous brown plastic.
I'd like some advice on covering them with fabric or paper. Can I glue or otherwise attach fabric or paper to the plastic? Do I have to peel off the plastic and then glue directly to the boards? Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.
