I'd seen these purses made from old books somewhere on the internet. Most likely here on Craftster and have since been looking for the perfect book to turn into my very own version. Then this summer when my family and I visited a paper factory there was a shelf of perfectly good books 'for grabs' because they were in such good condition that the factory people thought it a shame to turn them into pulp just yet. There I grabbed this 2000 pages collection of laws, which seemed very fitting as I am actually a law-student. Then when I was convinced that jurisprudence was about to kill me, I chopped up the book, used like six sticks of hotglue and ta daa...a book purse. Closed with a yellow fabric button that happened to match the color perfectly.

It does look splendid. The yellow is perfect too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Really nice, and nice with the yellow button matching!

Clever!  I keep returning to this thread to admire it.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
