Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Upcycle: A well lit book ... {book lights}


I've made book clocks, book folds and book "clutches". But never a book light. So I set out to find a tutorial and, as usual, got overwhelmed by options. And, as usual, gathered them here instead of actually making the light I still want to make. Ten inspiring ideas and tutorials for you ... Enjoy!
