A couple weeks ago, I was at the library and saw bags of novels for a dollar each. I picked one up, figuring I could do something with them. I have no idea what. They're all smallish paperback novels. Mostly romance, I think XP Any ideas, other than ATC's?

edit: I knew there was something that I forgot. My piano teacher used to give me plastic busts of famous composers and such (Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, etc.) but I have no idea what to do with them. They're fairly small, about the size of erm, a computer mouse? They're off-white in color.

I had the same problem except with babysitters club books. I made some purses out of them. They make the cutest little clutches. With a little glue, some sissors and some imagination the ideas are endless!

Cut out the great "words" or statements from the novels, glue them on the back of clear marbles for magnets.  They can be rearranged on the fridge for some great fun.....romance novels, huh?  You could deco the little busts and make pendants?

Make tiny hilarious hats and put them on the little bust guys.  Line them up on a mantle or on top of your TV or a shelf or something.  This would make me laugh every day.

Historical figures in funny hats rule.

I once made dirty valentines for friends out of the more explicit old stroke books I found in my mother's attic (Mother!)
you have to scan through the book for the naughty bits, select the best parts and then make little valentine collages to send to people who will think it is funny. Like my mother. Old romances always have great covers-- if you have any experience sewing, vinyl insert purses or wallets would be a great way to showcase some awesome oil painted embraces or steamy airbrushed photo realistic romance covers...  you know the kind-- they have pockets you can slip images into.... or the images are sewn in with the vinyl.
