Happy Sunday! Here's a quick DIY for you. What you need:
- Old book pages
- Mod Podge, scissors and tape
- Hole punch and material for handles (twine, tape, ribbon)
- A big hard-back book (or a box from your recycling) for sizing the bag
If you've been following this blog for a while, you know I make book clocks. And here's my argument as to why it's ok to craft with old books.
I don't usually remove the pages to make a clock - I like it to look like a book hanging the wall. But in this case, the pages are so interesting! And they were also falling out of the book. So I decided to try something new: use the book's pages to make a gift bag.
Step 4: Keep folding and taping. Even with all the Mod Podge reinforcement, this paper still cracked in a couple of places as I folded it.
