I bought this book at a Friends of the Library book sale a few months back. Threw it in the den drawer thinking I would use it to make heart shaped confetti for Valentine's Day or such.
I took off the dust jacket. (Which was super, super glued onto the book.)
Cut the pages free from the cover.
Then I started to fold the pages.
It got harder the further into the book I got. I ended up cutting it in half at the 202 page mark...
Then I duct taped the book and made two side panels from duct tape.
And made a clutch purse from the cover.
I ended up with two book 'trees' and a cool little purse.
I decorated the trees for the 4th of July... Maybe I'll change up the ribbon to coordinate with each passing holiday.
I saw the book trees in a craft magazine and I love working with duct tape (I usually make flowers). It was really fun to join in on the challenge!
