As I approached the end of the book I thought oh I'll just drop it in the recycling bin, but then I thought why not have a bit of fun, so I created a page in my Pinterest account called paper play and put up a few ideas. My criteria was it had to be quick and simple to make, didn't require me to buy anything else and something I could accommodate into my home easily and here are the results
WARNING - Jilly Cooper novels are quite saucey, I have viewed the photos and don't think there is anything offensive in there, please let me know if you spot anything and I will remove the photo.
A floating hearts mobile
Decorated gift tags or confetti
Decorative envelope bunting
They were all fun to do and quick to execute, I have hardly made a dent in the book so I will keep it for a short time and try a few more activities. I think the envelopes are my favorite and have definitely potential to be made into an advent calendar. I think I would choose a book who's material was more in keeping with the project, then you could highlight key words or sentences.
Which is your favorite? have you re-purposed any old books? can you suggest any other projects for the remaining pages?
