Bookish Crafts

Since it was World Book day yesterday I thought you might all still be feeling bookish. Here are three really simple but cute crafts I found on Pinterest. If I get a chance I’ll give them a go so you can see what they look like from an amateur.

Now I know some people will see it as sacrilege to tear up or cut up a book, but I think some of the effects are worth it. Plus it means that your item (be it for fun or as a gift to someone) has a special meaning.

Vintage Book Bouquet 

If you’re after something a little more complex, what about a book bouquet? This looks simply stunning and might be worth a go if you’re a crafty person. Lia Griffith also has several other paper flower designs which I’m sure would look amazing using vintage books.
