I love books, the smell, the texture, the weight, the appearance, the possibilities (that looks weird in writing, I don’t have a problem, I promise, come back). If you are like me and love books, even if you only ‘like’ them or have a friend who loves books, why not make your love-affair public (or at least more visible)?
I’ve recently been in a complete DIY mood, spending several hours on Pinterest (heaven for DIYers) and YouTube. There are so many things you can do with books, things you can do to decorate your books or simplify your reading experience. If you’ve a DIY idea involving books or if you’ve tried one of the ones I’ve listed, let me know!
Transforming books into something else
Book clutch with clasp – can be used as a clutch as well as storage
Book clutch with zipper – if you use a bigger book you can use this tutorial to make a laptop case
Hidden storage – perfect if you, like me have messy bookshelves
Protect and simplify
I’m especially excited to make an invisible bookshelf, a hidden storage box, a clutch and using one of the clutch tutorials to make a laptop case. Yet, I’m a bit concerned about taking apart books. It hurts!
