That was my response to Deke when he suggested I throw away this book while re-organizing our bookshelf. I have a passion for reading and I cherish the books that I have accumulated over the years and he wants me to throw one away?!?
Apparently Deke was talked into purchasing this book from a co-worker and after reading a few pages completely lost interest. He claimed he would never pick it up again and didn't want it wasting space on our bookshelf. OK, I agree we shouldn't keep books we don't want but I was having a hard time considering just tossing it.
I decided to make a craft out of it!
4 hours, 5 glue sticks, and about 50 burns later I had this masterpiece to place beautifully beside my beloved bookshelf! I found this AWESOME book wreath tutorial HERE.
I think its very complimenting next to the bookshelf, wouldn't you agree?
The only thing I changed in the tutorial was to add the long black ribbon in opposed to her short loop. I think the long ribbon added some class!
Ohhh it feels good to be resourceful!
