Give old scores a 2nd life!!
My first idea was work with old newspapers but I changed my opinion as soon as I saw these ancient scores at Els Encants Market in Barcelona. These are 1869 french scores of Auguste Durand's work for piano, violin and cello, called Méditation and dedicated to "Princesse Mathilde". Lots of history contained here... Anyhow, sacrilege feelings a part, here you are a tutorial to transform old scores into a clutch preseving them

This is a beautiful idea! What do you mean in steps 3 & 4 by "turn scores?" Do you just mean turn the pages?
