I've seen some of these on Etsy and loved the idea of it.  I scoured my local thrift store for a thick enough hardback and viola!  The color of the book is a touch washed out in the photos but none of the other shots were any better :/  I definitely plan on making more of these!

Thanks!  Post pics if you do, I'd love to see it.  I want to do one with some more embellishments on it, I picked up a gorgeous charcoal grey book that's just begging for something to be glued to it!

Great idea! I have a million books that are falling apart, but I'd need to a bigger book to fit a book into the purse  Grin
