Bibliophiles and bookworms, English majors and lovers of literature: is it possible to have too many books?
In response to some very, very passionate book lovers (who thought when I said 9 Ways to Turn Old Musty Books Into Something Cool , I meant old and musty as in the Book of Kells, not old and musty like my mother’s collection of Harlequins she bequeathed to me) I have compiled this list of wack-tastic bookmarks, designed to preserve precious tomes.
UPDATE: If you came here from Pinterest, we later updated our readers with more examples and a video tutorial... it's much easier to follow! You can find it here . Happy crafting and thanks for dropping by! Eric often tells me I remind him of Maria from the Sound of Music. Maybe it's my short-strawberry blonde hair.
Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the second 'Take the Challenge' of 2013! Today, I have a challenge for you. I feel that creative challenges help us experiment and learn new things. Challenges can help us get unstuck from creative ruts. They can also inspire us to create in ways we would not have thought of otherwise. So, I decided to take a few creative challenges myself and thought you might like to play along.
The first step into making the hollow book is to select a book.
1 . Select the pieces of paper to be recycled. You can even mix different types to create your own unique paper.
Invisible ink, spy cameras, secret passageways… if it’s incognito, we love it. Our yen for all things surreptitious and sneaky has inspired us to craft this clansdestine camera case out of a hollowed-out book. It’s highly useful for tricking enemy spies into believing you are a harmless bookworm instead of the undercover photo ninja that you are.
Jojo and Mei Mei have been very 'busy' in their room this morning. I can see Mei Mei running up and down looking for papers...I passed her a few sheet of 'recycled paper' but she said her big sister want her to get something 'nice and special'. The little one ask for a few pieces colored paper and run into their room again. Hmm...what 'funny' things are they up to this time? So, I took a peek into the room... and I found a very messy room with paper scraps, scissors and pens...and these... These little paper dresses are everywhere in the room.
There are lots of different jewelry storages ideas. One of the interesting solutions is stash book. It doesn’t take much space, does not attract attention and looks very stylish and elegant.
Всем добрый день!
Maps are so beautiful. I’ve been looking for some ways to use them because I see them everywhere (including my glove box). Just like CD’s, record albums , and books , they are becoming obsolete due to the emergence of electronics like the GPS and the internet. But what I do love about maps is that they tell a story and simultaneously serve as a work of art. Here are six great ways to recycle maps.
This is a project I have been working on for awhile now! I got the idea from a blog I love Altered Alchemy . She makes beautiful necklaces and books that are so incredible I really wanted to try to make some myself!
To make this fun and easy marbleized paper you will need: 1/2 tsp alum (helps paint adhere to the paper), 2 cups liquid starch, liquid acrylic paints, a long wooden skewer , a 9 X 13 pan and white copy paper cut to fit the inside your pan. You can change up the size of the pan, just keep the proportions of starch and alum the same. The starch should be 1 to 2 inches deep in your pan.
