To keep with the valentine theme I thought I’d share a book bundle I made and shared last year.
I tore off the cover from a couple old encyclopedias, taped them together and stamped on the cover and spine with various love themed stamps.
I used a wide ribbon to help hold the books together.
I decorated a corner with some crepe paper rolled roses.
This was a fun project I made with things I had on hand, old encyclopedias, stamps, ink, ribbon and crepe paper.
Love themed stamps
Crepe paper or other material to make roses
Total cost: $0* as all items were from my supplies.
* If you want crepe paper check out dollar stores for inexpensive rolls. If you don’t have old books or don’t want to rip covers off your books you could cover books you have on hand in craft or butcher paper and stamp on that so your books are not damaged. Then after the holiday you can take the covers off and keep for next year or throw them away.
