These are so cute!  I agree with Seraphina - you may see something someone else did and go with it, but we always end up putting our own spin on it.

Hi Guys,

Thanks so much for all the positive feed back! 

For the holes, I used a drill & a fat drill bit.   The 2 sides of the grommets that are supposed to fit together were too thick for the book & I also didn't have the "grommet tool"  so I just glued the smaller half of the grommets to the holes (both inside & out).   

I used the E6000 glue that I saw recommended on here, boy that stuff holds well, but those purses STINK -- they smell like a skunk!

Next time, I'm thinking craft glue for the majority of the bag, and E6000 for the "tough to glue" areas.   

Thanks again,

M

I love these bags.  I would love to make some, but I love to read and I would have a hard time taking a book apart to make a bag.  It always makes me mad when I let someone borrow a book and I get it back all messed up.

I agree about having a hard time messing up decent books. My sister hit on the idea of buying books from a thrift store. She got 'em in some other language and didn't feel so bad about ripping 'em up. They're gorgeous!

I got an old book for 50 cents at the library.  It was an outdated computer/math type book, so I'm not afraid to destroy it.  Just don't pick a classic!
