Recycled Books

When we came home from the store, Ash and I spotted a pile of books that someone had left near the dumpster. Evidently they didn’t want them, but couldn’t throw them out, so they left them there in hopes that someone would rescue them (at least, that’s what I would like to believe). Ashley grabbed most of them, figuring whatever we didn’t want, she could trade on paperbackswap.com. There were a few Twilight books and a couple of them were slightly water damaged (which means they can’t go on PBS), so Ash was going to throw them out since neither one of us will read them. But wait! I have always like crafts and things that use book pages, however, I can’t justify destroying a book for the sake of arts and crafts. But I don’t consider Twilight to be quality literature and I’m completely okay with destroying it to make something better. So, I’ve been searching the internet for cool book crafts. Here are my favorites.

Cute as a Button

Granny gave us a bunch of old buttons that someone had given to her and she didn’t want/need. So, I’ve been googling button crafts and projects to get ideas on what to do with them. These are a few of the cutest.

book flowers, note cards, button tree, button cookies, tea napkins, snowflake necklace

I know that title is so cliche, but come on, these things are super cute AND they’re buttons. What else am I suppose to title it?
