I've been making these babies for years... but recently I've gone beyond the simple book purse and decided to paint on them too! I've been using guache paint and sealing them afterward. I also make my own handles!

Cheers to recycling!

those are awesome! I have never seen book purses, but I love the idea of always having a good use for using old books.

Very cool and it definitely solves the problem of finding a cool looking book, as well as the added bonus of having a cool piece of art to tote around!
