What you can do with old books

Remember this is one a large base, but could be made smaller and we all have books around we do not know what to do with...

That's very cool!!

I also like the book wreaths that are very popular now. They are made from pages of books. Although I don't condone ruining books, if they are old or no longer of use, I'm ok with it. There are some cute wreaths out there!

Yep! There's a bunch of different ones out there. If we weren't hoping to move this summer, I would try to make one but that's just another things to take down and have to move.

Love the desk and the weath. I have made several altered books out of discarded books from my library. I enjoy scrapbooking and found old discard books that are no longer being checked out an economical source of scrapbooks.
Also I have seen purses made from old book covers.
