... the older, the better, the more tattered and worn, the better. New books are ok, but old books, I adore.
I'm sure I've told you that before... probably several times. :)
I know what you're thinking ~ "If you love them so much why do you tear them up?"
I do use quite a few to make my wreaths and other paper whimsies, but believe me, I have LOTS more that I won't use.
They will forever remain on my book shelves.
This week I've listed two church hymnal wreaths and two medical book wreaths in my Etsy shop,
all of which are made from old books, books that are falling apart or have torn pages or have pages that have been written on ...
I have several more wreaths and other paper pretties to make in the coming weeks for my new website, Simple Joys Paperie, but I wanted to slowly start adding more to my Etsy shop since summer is winding down and online shopping is revving up again.
Do you like old books?
What's your most treasured book?
Do you have a book you'd like to see made into a wreath?
Please leave a comment ~ I'd love to know! :)
