I think this is the right area for this. If not, I apologize!

I recently picked up a few books from a "Free Book Day!" at my college library for crafting purposes (cannot make me sacrifice my own babies!!) but I didn't have many of the other supplies I needed for various projects on hand. So, inspired by the amazing project found here http://urbandaisies.blogspot.com/2010/09/book-page-pumpkins.html I made one for my aunt who is recuperating after a nasty fall.

My version!




Cost of project: Less than $2!
Pumpkin $1
Spanish Moss $1 for a bag, only tiny bit used
Pages Free from school library (Not the Belgariad! It was some history book!)
Mod Podge In my stash already
Stick Free from my tree

Quick and easy project. I am definitely making more for my own home.

I love this idea.  Much cleaner than the traditional pumpkin, and still just as awesome!

Definitely NOT the Belgariad, I swear. I just needed a book to prop it up on. Smiley The actual pages are from some book on the presidency of Eisenhower. I'm thinking about going to the Dollar Store again and looking for a Cinderella book, though. Or printing out other 'Cinderella' like stories to do another one.

Thanks! And yes, much much cleaner! And, since it is a fake pumpkin, it will last much longer!
