I love the stacked book bundle that PB is selling but seriously $39 for 4 "authentic vintage books"?? Who are they kidding?
Four books and a piece of twine for $39?
You can check ‘theirs’ out here.
And mine below.
I only used three books but I like them a lot better than the $39 version. :)
I started with a few old encyclopedias, tore the covers off and decorated them.
A few crepe paper rolled flower, some stamps and a ribbon.
I stamped on the binding as well as the top book.
I tried the make the rolled crepe paper flowers are thick as I could. These are almost an inch high.
I think the love book bundle looks perfect on my Valentine display.
Anyone willing to pay me $39 for a stack of ‘Hand Stamped and Decorated Authentic Vintage Book Bundle’?
Heck, I’ll even throw in free shipping.
Anyone, anyone? Ask nice and I might even give you a discount….
Total cost: $0
I had all the supplies on hand, most for years except the crepe paper that I purchased after Christmas for pennies a roll. I used only a fraction of the roll, probably not even a cents worth.
Don’t forget about my 50 card set giveaway. You can check it out and enter here.
