Altered Starbucks Mini Book

I have seen several samples of altered mini books made from Starbucks coffee sleeves, and decided to try one on my own.  I have to say that I am pleased with the outcome.  I created a book for my friends, Nicole and Sam, of a day spent in the park with their two daughters, Myah and Kylee.  You've seen them before, but these are photos were taken when they were much younger.  I started with this (5 Starbucks sleeves):

and came up with this:
 The book is small and compact so it can easily stand on a table.
Can't wait to see their faces when they see this book.

What a cool idea! I've never seen anything like this before. My inclination is towards repurposing glass and metal, but it does take its toll on my hands :). Do you have more info on how I could make something like this? Ive been trying to stay away from takeout coffee, mainly because there was so much waste involved. But this project makes it better!
