Wild Card Wednesday: What can be made from a book?

I had so much fun with this post. BOOKS ARE FUN! both to read and to craft with. Here are a few fun things you can make with books. There are still so much more but I didn't want the post to be crazy long.
The first is a book paper wreath
I made this for my mom's 50th birthday but how cute would it be to but a picture of a turkey or a Christmas tree in the middle.

This is a fun idea for Thanksgiving to use as a place card holder or for Christmas. Trow some glitter on them and hang them like snowflakes. I think I want to make more and hang them from my window as snowflakes. SO CUTE!!


This one is made from a full soft back book. I use it to make my vase taller. You could use it as a candle holder or it could stand on it's own.
remove the cover and...

I have had this book sitting on my book shelf for a few years now and i still love it just as much as when i made it. This book was made form a hard back book and you keep the cover on. If you want you could use a soft back and remove the cover just like the top.


This one I think is my new favorite
use a think book or rip the cover off a bigger book and cut it smaller. That is what I did.

I hope you enjoy books as much as I do....for reading and crafting

Are these directions more clear somewhere else? You can't read the instructions and the projects look adorable and fun to make. Thank you for your time. Carole
