I'm normally too much of a book lover to justify doing something like this...but something struck me while I was cleaning my house all night that gave me this idea:






I covered the books in a relatively thick gauge vinyl, after sealed them with a little bit of glitter.  The front of the bag is the front covers, the back is the back covers.  The books are from 1984.  I discovered that duct tape crafting is somewhat nightmarish for my level of perfectionism, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

thanks for looking!

I love it! What could be better than glittery Fraggles that hold your lunch?

this is FREAKIN awesome~ my husband makes fun of me for not loving the fraggles as much as him all the time...i think he might actually carry a bag like this to the store (he wont use my recycled bags cos they have JoAnns labels on them haha)

great job!

Looks great!  Grin
I think my boyfriend would kill me if I dismantled anything that had to do with Fraggle Rock, though.

I had no idea there were Fraggle books. Makes sense, I suppose.
Gives me another thing to look for at the thrift store!
