Cool Stuff for Monday - Projects for Old Books

The new year is all about fresh beginnings, right? Clearing out the old to make way for the new. Now, personally, I would never consider Books to be something that needed to be cleared out (and I have the overburdened bookshelves to prove it :) But if I ever do want to clear out some old books, I'm going to start with this post by The Written Word: 9 Ways to Turn Old Musty Books Into Something Cool:

We are up to our waists in books, some of which we hate (really Master Burns? Scottish dialect? A mouse?!) yet we will never give them away. Because they just might come in handy some day. Like a day when you decide you want to transform your old books into awesome works of art. Like today.

The Written Word's post includes a round up of awesome ideas like turning old books into handbags, glass pendants, or my favorite, paper beads like in this video:

Check it out and maybe convert some of your old books into a fab project. As long as they're not Climbing Rose books, that is :)

Haha, that's something cool to do with those awful books you can't bear to pass on to someone else (because they stink so bad) but you also can't stand to throw out. Thanks!

Good idea, Ali--and what a fitting end to a book that disappointed you!
