I feel sorry for books.
Not all books, just those already-read, can't-sell-at-a-yard-sale, obscure little books that end up at the thrift store collecting dust. I keep waiting for my brain to kick in with all sorts of wonderful inventions. Every once in awhile a new idea crops up, but alas, I feel there must be more creativity stuck inside my gray matter that just hasn’t surfaced yet.
Maybe some of my already created treasures will inspire someone else to save a few trees, and a few written words from ending up in the recycle bin.

|Another pretty book. I printed the burlap on my printer then stitched the fabric layers before gluing to the book. Highlited with a rhinestone and a ribbon.|
If you are in the mood for a little more effort, see what you can create after you pull some books apart.
