My mum is bookish. No, actually she's very bookish. No, I think the adjective I'm looking for is extremely, yes that's right, extremely bookish.

So in addition to all the non-bookish things she will get for Christmas, like wooly coats and socks and shopping delivery vouchers (she's been known to without meals so that she can finish the next chapter  Roll Eyes and to forget to buy a winter coat because the coat shop is next door to the book shop and she spent all her money on books before thinking about coats Roll Eyes), she'll get a wee fix for her addiction.

The tin is covered in air-dry clay, which was then painted in acrylics, the inside is lined with (shock, horror Shocked)old library book pages. and there's a selection of bookmarks inside.

There is a title to the book tin now, but I photographed it before I sorted that out. I may have to take another couple of pictures, because I now realise I haven't shown the shape, or the pages very well.



Additional photos I promised.

This is such a great idea. The clip with the paper flower is so pretty.  Smiley

This is adorable and such a creative way to package the bookmarks. Great job. Hope your mom loved it!
